The chicken fajitas were the best fajitias I've ever had. Service was so so, quite slow. Drinks and food were all great, great environment out on the patio for a nice brunch or lunch.

We waited over 45 for our food. When it arrived, it was at best mediocre. I had to send back the chicken. Maybe the holiday season got the best of them, but this place was a disappointment.

We were here for a rehearsal dinner and after party. We came back the next morning for breakfast. Nice atmosphere, good service, good food and large selection. Prices were really good as well.
