My wife & I received a gift card and tried going here on a Saturday night at 6pm. We hadn't been here in many years and have always been amazed at how popular it was, so a 45 min. wait time did not surprise us. The restaurant is spread out with many different rooms which can make socializing a little... More

Love Taco Tuesdays! $2.00 per taco and it is delicious. can have a very good meal plate for 6 or 7 dollars. Also, we are in our 70's but we blend in with all ages from very young (children) to 30 - 60 age group. A fun place to go!

Decent food. Fun place. Not sure I would say they are fantastic but good service. The drinks were probably the best part of the visit!

My family has been coming here for years. On my last visit, I ordered the cheesy steak burrito with no guacamole or refried beans. It consisted of a large burrito filled with fajita steak, onion, peppers, and spicy jalapeno cream cheese, dripping with flavorful chilly con queso. The burrito was large enough that I was able to bring half of... More

Enjoyed an excellent fish fry the last 2 Fridays and my husband wants to go back next Friday too. DELICIOUS (we had the Cod). They also have the most delicious chips and salsa. There is something for everyone on their menu. Going on a Friday night we expected to wait, but we were seated right away.

We used to dine here frequently when we lived in the area. Went back for a nostalgic visit on our last trip to the area. Our server was wonderful so I feel bad that I forgot his name. The chips and salsa are always great. They now have a jalapeno type ranch dip that is also served with the chips... More

We were there last evening for dinner with a group that ranged in age from newborn to, well, older - with 7 kids in the mix. Everyone found something to like on the menu and we sent a whole lot of empty plates back to the kitchen. They cater to kids with a coloring/puzzle page and lots of tasty options.... More

I travel 85% of the time and this is my favorite restaurant. It offers great drinks, food, and the service is always good. This is great for family and friend gatherings with a game room for for the kids. You can't be too noisy so no worries there.

We met a group for dinner on a Friday night. Although they couldn't find our group's name on the reservation list when we checked in. Others didn't have a problem. In any case, my husband and I had margaritas at the bar while we waited for others to arrive. I thought my mango margarita was good, but husband didn't think... More

Thank you so much for taking the time to review us here on TripAdvisor. Please accept our sincere apologies regarding that which were some of the "lows" that you mentioned. The Lobster and Shrimp enchiladas should certainly live up to their name, and have noticeable amounts of both lobster and shrimp. There is no excuse for a lack of lobster... More
