Bean dip is awesome. Fajitas are always my favorite choice. Try the combo with shrimp, beef and chicken.

The bean dip is awesome and the margaritas are probably the best in town! They hand - make their own mix!

Never eaten in a Mexican Restaurant that you weren' t served chips & salsa or offered. Bartendars were busy swatting flies must be why my Frozen Margarita was just crushed ice. No taste.
