We picked up some tacos and enchilada. Even though the place was packed, we didn't have to wait more than 15 minutes. Good food.

The food is good...service was not as good. The server seemed to forget that we were there for lunch. They always have a line so they must have some servers that are good!

Had dinner here after exploring the village. Good food with vegetarian option. Service was very quick. Portions were substantial and you did not leave hungry. Nice for families as it is affordable as well as tasty.
