First of all, the chips and salsa were the best we've had anywhere in years. The enchilada plate with bell peppers inside was fantastic. We love this place and always bring our out of town family members here. The avocado/chicken special was amazing too! Please...More

This is a great place to meet up with friends for dinner and drinks. Margaritas and sangria swirls are good. The food is fresh and the patio offers a festive, party atmosphere with good, live entertainment on weekends. Prices are reasonable.

Craving Tex-Mex? This place can satisfy. I had the queso enchiladas with a Chechen taco and sweet tea. Very satisfying. The place is a little loud. It offers patio seating and live music. It is easy to get to and worth a try if you...More

I had a return visit last Saturday, first since Feb 2014. When my buddy asked where I wanted to go, this was a no brainer. Another friend joined us from Lubbock, and the beer was ice cold, and the fajitas were hot and tasty. Everyone...More
