Chips served warm - very light and served with fresh salsa which was tasty with perfect amount of heat! Ordered grill fish with mango salsa and lime rice. Food was fresh- great with squeeze of lime juice.

Sat in the bar. Had a margarita, a tequila shot, and fajitas. My family and I all had a great time. Our waiter, bus boy, and bartender were all great. Clean.

Service was very good. It was quiet as it was an early dinner visit. The food was good but not great as we have grown accustom to getting at this location.

The only reason they get 3 stars (average) is the food. Great chips and salsa and the garlic butter sauce that comes with the fajitas sends them over the top.....however the service was really sub par....first our server came to the table still chewing her...More

Every day at 8 a.m., we start chopping veggies, soaking beans, and prepping our mesquite-fired grill. Not because we have to, but because we believe in delicious flavors made-to-order, from hand-rolled enchiladas to our sizzling fajitas to guacamole made right at your table. Everything pairs nicely with a grande margarita, and of course, enjoy the always endless chips and salsa.
