We weren't very happy with this restaurant. My husband ordered a steak cooked medium and it was almost rare. The service was okay.

This is one of our favorite places to eat in our city. The food is of good quality and the wait staff couldn't be any nicer. We both had the Pollo Tapatio, (chicken) off their dinner menu. Oh my goodness, what a meal! (I had...More
