Friendly waiter is the best thing I can say. On a Sunday afternoon the place is virtually empty - now I know why. Margarita was fine. Enchiladas we're full of raw onions more so than chicken. Salsa was watery. Water pitcher on the table was...More

Stopped by after visiting Arts festival on nearby courthouse square. Good friendly service. Had taco salad and fish tacos, both executed well. Nice choice of different flavor salsas.
