Enjoyable atmosphere for friends or family to gather. Nice eats that is relatively inexpensive with a large bar selection. Can have waiting times, but worth the wait.

Great place to run out for a bite to eat. Place was hopping this Sunday evening and even with bustling crowd you didn't feel rushed. Fajitas were amazing and they even served home made tortillas. Price was reasonable and staff was annentive.
