clean, friendly staff. The nachos were very good and our waitress suggested we split them, a good thing was a large order enough for 3 people and only 2 of us. Offered a go box without being requested. We went here based on recommendation from...More

Best Part of our dinner experience was the meal, when we got it. Was a nice evening so we sat outside. Trash on ground all around the patio - kinda diminishes atmosphere. Waited forever for service. A nice man who seemed to only be cleaning...More
