This is our first visit since they moved to the new location. The enchiladas were tasty. I had a chicken special with pineapple that was also well done. The service was good. Nice hustle.

Guessing they just re-opened within the last week and it was a bit hit and miss last night. Nice looking attractive place with nice sized bar (no TV however) but this place is going to be super loud when busy. Dined early last night and...More

NEW LOCATION- I've loved this place in the past but tonight at the new location, NOT GOOD at all. I ordered the chicken enchiladas which were mainly tortilla shells with barely ANY chicken in them at all (literally 4 little bites of chicken in each)....More
