Our party of four had lousy service. The bartenders had no idea how to make common drinks. The wait staff was not on top of their game. The food was average....better to go to Jalapeno Loco just a half mile away.

We had a great birthday celebration here. The food was excellent and portions were large. A Mariachi band serenaded the tables. Wonderful ambiance!

Been here several times with friends. Sadly, their “giant” burrito is not truly giant. I enjoy eating a good amount and this did not fill me up. On my last visit they kept replenishing our chips, so I was very full before our meal came...More

A wonderful experience. Perfect weather as we dined next to there huge waterfall. The appetizers came in large sharable portions. The queso fundido was great, the jalapenos were immense and the shrimp were garlicky (as they should be). Oh yeah, I had dinner too.
