The food was very good and they give you a lot of food. The piña coladas were awesome. I definitely recommend this place to everybody. I will go back when ever I go that way. 😋😊

Nothing bad to say, nothing outstanding. Menu items all seem to be OK. Frijoles very plain. Rice fair. Service without fault.

With a little hunting you can find much better Mexican food. Over salted, under flavored, pasty enchiladas.

Outstanding Sangria and Chips/Salsa. The seafood salad is outstanding and most dishes are solid and authentic. Give it a shot and you will not be dissapointed.
