To begin, plenty of parking options, which is unusual for Corpus. Once we, myfamily and a friend, entered there was a small wait, about 2 minutes. We were led to a clean table in a room that was easy to visit in. Many interesting items...More

Not the cleanest or most modern place, but the food was pretty good. The fajita plate for two was plenty for two people.
