Stumbled upon this place while driving and was quite surprised. The portions are huge and the food is delicious! The cheese enchiladas were tasty and the fried ice cream was perfection. Service was great as well. Can't wait to come back!

A little pricey but overall good food. Cool atmosphere... a great date spot. Would recommend! I got the fajitas and it was great. Enough food to split. Live music sometimes as well.
