We stopped in on a Saturday while in town and thoroughly enjoyed the lunch and the visit. The service was great, super friendly servers. Food was excellent with portions that were filling but not so over-the-top that you left half of it on your plate....More

The wait staff were very friendly and attentive. The endless chips and salsa were great! I got the chicken burrito and could hardly finish it. Good place to eat and socialize.

Went here on an office outing for lunch and their specialty tacos are amazing. The beer battered fish taco, cheeseburger taco, and others are incredible. Also the salsa was very good as well. I met the owner while I was there too and she was...More

My biggest appeal to this restaurant is that they cater to my allergies and take them seriously. They were willing to create a dish just for me that had no gluten or soy. I am a regular customer now and plan on being one for...More
