Came here for after-work drinks with some colleagues. Francisco the bartender was KILLING IT. He seemed to be the only one working out front for the evening. Was able to keep up with all the patrons and still make small-talk with us at the bar....More

Very good Fajitas. The beans were a bit to spicy hot for my taste. I was with friends(total of four of us), and they automatically added the tip into the bill.

We were staying nearby and picked this restaurant at random. Comfortable, casual. Seemed a bit pricy, but maybe average for the area. Pleasant staff, quick service. Large portions. Good but not great mexican. Recommend.
