Great service with a really neat Salsa Bar, you choose from any of 11 different dips for your taco chips. Make sure you try the pineapple dip!

Good solid Mexican food, liked the salsa bar. Food was fresh, service excellent. I ordered the chicken quesadilla, nice mixture of meat and cheese. My husband had the shrimp fajitas, they did not skimp on the shrimp. Very reasonably priced.
