Had the chicken mango salad and my mother had the 50 cent mini taco special. Both were good and serve with chips and salsa. It was a busy day due to the mini taco special but everyone including managers were working very hard.

Stopped by for a quick drink and snack. Had some chips and guacamole and a glass of margarita. The latter was not bad at all (although personally I prefer a slightly different style). The place was packed on Sat night.

The service was excellent. The portions were large, prices reasonable, staff friendly and helpful. We were a group of 6, and we were seated quickly on the patio.
