Diner Reviews
  • "We went there with a bunch of ladies. Happy hour and the band were great. When we sat down for the food, it was a big disappointment. Was not sure what I was eating in the fish tacos. My friend had the shrimp fajitas which tasted a lithe better. We had hoped for some good mexican food and it didn't happen."
