Been to this place many x's. Great on a nice day for sitting outside on the extended patio. The street tacos are fantastic. Ritas are strong but decent. Also a great place to pop in for a roadie.

Had a nice lunch outside under the marquis. Food good, prices a little steep for lunch. Should offer a lunch menu.
