Good taco but appetizers need some work. 3 small carrots and 2 little cherry tomatoes do not qualify as an appetizer. It's more of a lunch please but not dinner.

Hello, I am the manager of the restaurant and I do apologize for the wait and confusion. I was actually in the kitchen that morning to help cook, so I remember your large group very well. Specifically this order, that I personally addressed myself, along...More

We stayed next door and this was the only place that opened early. We were the first ones in the door so the service was fast. The breakfast we had was large and tasted great.

Newly opened, so working a few bugs out, but they served an excellent breakfast quickly and the waiter earned points by asking what he could have done better (answer - nothing, he did a great job)
