I have heard good things about this restaurant so my friend and I decided to try it for a night out for dinner. The guacamole was flavorless and started to brown while at the table. The Mexican rice was bland. The shrimp fajita was ok,...More

Went for Taco Tuesday - you got 2 tacos for $8 which wasn't that great of a deal. Last night was Thanksgiving tacos, they are filled with mashed potatoes ( instant ones), stuffing, turkey and drizzled with cranberry sauce. They were ok, but would never...More
