We had taken our driver and ourselves to this restaurant one time when the Mall first opened and I am a total "Spinach Freak" so when walking by that day and I found out they served a Spinach Quessidilla that brought me right in the door. That item was just incredibly delicious and Wow...it was so big it could keep... More

the different chichis are very nice, they have a lot of tvs and a big menu, but the prices are off the charts, its a regular sports bar, and prices are like dinning at the finest restaurants, not worth it.

The food and service is good but it's expensive!! The hamburgers are good as well as the chicken, potato wedges, drinks, and appetizers.

I went to their location in san jose area last year !! Fajitas were like close to $30 bucks ! older looking place kind of shabby and want to charge prices even higher than a international franchise ! But wait they do not have to pay the fees! in a nutshell not worth it !!

This place is your typical sports bar, TV's and fried foods. I didn't particularly like the food.. at all but you can definately go there to drink and watch sports with friends. It fulfills this without issue. But the food is pretty much all from a freezer. Not much more to say.

Good bar food. The place when busy is a little on the loud side for my liking. good service. For sports followers this place has lots of big TVs.

Secure, attended parking. Overly generous portions of entrees and good drinks. Very popular with locals is always a good sign.

Lots of TV's to catch US football or soccer, the servers were all fantastic, everyone checked up on us, not just our one guy. Drinks are $9 for a margaritta but...they are huge and don't use the pre-made mix. If you catch a happy hour they are 2x1, Sundays after 3p is a happy hour. Food is sort of pricey,... More
