We wanted some Tex mex and this place hit the spot. The beef nachos were good, but the beef quesadilla was amazing! Loved the salsa and how they give you generous portions. Would go back if ever in town.

This restaurant is always busy so we gave it a try. I felt there was nothing special about the food and in general it lacked much in the way of traditional Mexican Flavors. The chips were light and tasty and the margaritas carry a kick.

The service was very good and for the most part the food was excellent. On the downside, the pork used in the pork nachos was very fatty and the free ice cream was gritty. I would go back but I'd skip the pork.

Compared to local tex mex places n regional chains, its a bit more upscale with food, bar, n decor. Also more consistent food. Safe choice n great value. I prefer the Pick (2,3,4) items. Its the best value and always the perfect combination platter.
