There was no doubt the blood orange margaritas had tequila in them! The homemade chips were amazing. The chile con queso was the best ever. And the entrees were awesome. I can't stop raving about this place! You need to go!! 😀

We arrived around 5:30 for dinner. There were only about 3 other families there, but about 30 minutes later, the place was packed! The chips and salsa were both fresh. Also, the prices were good considering the large portions served.

Love this place. Food is consistently great, atmosphere is always upbeat, Tuesday nights the locals always show up for live music. Great place for families to all enjoy great food from a true local restaurant.
