Very good salsa, with a good kick to it. Nice clean place, pleasant staff. Well seasoned shrimp in my stuffed avocado. A bit slow, but we were there on off hours and the avocado takes a little longer.

Food is great and staff is friendly and courteous. Have had dinner, lunch and breakfast and all were above average. Reasonably priced. Beware, can be very busy at times, but the food is worth the wait.
