Wait for the cooler weather to enjoy the fantastic patio. Dining inside is extremely noisy, even when the restaurant is not crowded.

Good service and a great sitting area in the back. They were very accommodating of our group whom was a mix of people who wanted sun and shade. They found the perfect table for us and kept the beers and margaritas flowing.

Dinner runs from 10.-20 dollars each, however I do believe that a plate of enchiladas run about $15.00, which I think is fairly high. Some dishes can be shared and do make sure to sit outside on the patio,, as the ambience... More
