Great food and margaritas, as always. This is our go-to place for a quick meal. Love the flour chips too, and I always take some of my entree home for dinner the next night, as the portions are large.

The food was great. Slightly smaller portions in my opinion than comparable meals at other restaurants but that may not be a bad thing! lol it was great place for a date night. It did take quite a while to get our food- 40 minutes from the time we ordered, however it was also a Saturday night. All in all, would absolutely go back.
