Chips were thick (good for dipping) and street tacos delicious. Bathroom needed attention (broken toilet) but staff seemed to be working hard to take care of everyone. No wait at lunchtime, and we were in and out inside of an hour.More

Had appetizers and drinks at Maggie's Blue Rose. Everything was delicious. Their chips and salsa are the best. Queso Fuido was delicious, served with homemade tortillas. Nachos were good, but come with a lot of beans! Service was very good.More
