Just had lunch here today. The food was very good. Portion size is ok but if you like large quantities of food - you should try one of the national chains. Service was fairly good although we had to ask for the check - twice....More

This place has the real Mexican beer, Happy Hour on Sunday and the best Margaritas in town. The shrimp tacos are great along with the cold beer you can’t beat his place. Great atmosphere and family And kid friendly. The wait staff are great.

We enjoyed this restaurant for the decor, friendly service and good pricing. Quality of the foot was good but not outstanding.
