We went through the tavern to see where some movies were filmed. It was cool to see the different movie sets. There was a band playing that sounded very good but did not get the name of the band

We decided to stop at this particular restaurant because of the number of cars that were parked out front. The outside dining deck was another factor in our decision. Huge menu! Decided on the Mexican dishes and my food was delicious! Other party members ate...More
