The staff we encountered was great and our server, Jo, was absolutely awesome. When asked about a drink that wasn't on the menu, she even volunteered to make that drink . It was great, and so was the food. After considering other spots to eat,...More

I put in another "to go" order for the Fajitas. The price did go up, and they do charge a 50 cent "to go" charge, but I really do not mind at all. Everyone in the restaurant are awesome. They are so friendly and helpful....More
