The menu selection is huge. The decor is nice, clean and new. Our chips were a little stale for my liking but our food was good. Nice place. Friendly service. And lots of help.

We had eaten here once before a very long time ago, and I wasn't excited when my sister suggested meeting here again when we were stopping in their area....but we did and I have to say it was better than I remembered it.

Upon entering the restaurant, the hostess acted like it was a problem seating us yet the restaurant was not full and it was not near closing time. Then we ordered two margaritas...when we... More

They wouldn't make a reservation, told us no problem, they could seat us. We got there and they ignored us and we're rude.

Visited on a Friday evening and enjoyed our meal. I ordered Pollo Loco and found it one of best Mexican dishes that I have ever enjoyed! A large butterflied pounded chicken breast covered in sauteed zucchini, onions, peppers, and mushrooms, with rice and guacamole.

We stop by here every year when in Dayton and staying at the nearby Wingate hotel. Never disappointed! Food is always good, served fast and the staff is friendly and helpful.

Food was OK service was horrible. Went with business group of 15. Not sure if waitress didn't like me or was just prejudice. Felt like the back of the bus service. Didn't follow directions regarding the bill and had to wait and get attention last. I visit Ohio every 3 months for business. Won't go here with the group ever... More
