I had a to go order, - a pricey Taco Salad @ $15, contained reheated grilled chicken breast that must have been left over from lunch. The end slices were tough and it not warm at all. There were about 10 black beans & corn...More

Im so sorry you didnt enjoy your salad. there is nothing worse than overcoomed chicken...we always cook the chicken fresh and I'm sorry it was over done. The taco salad is usually a favorite. I apologize for your experience.

Mary, I am so sorry for your experience. I am not sure what happened but rest assured this is embarrassing to me as the owner and not something that is the norm at our restaurant. If you would be good enough to try us again,...More
