The food was mediocre. The tables filthy. The wait staff was ok. I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone, well maybe someone I didn't care for.

This place is relaxing. The food is consistently good, all day happy hour on Mondays, full bar. Outdoor seating along the boulevard is available, as well as a nice covered patio and indoor seating.

We left SoCal in the late 90s and this was a favorite spot. The food is still good, but not what it used to be. Still has very large portions and the value for what you get is good, the margaritas as still quite tasty!...More

Carne asada was awesome as well as the chimicangas. The shrimp fajitas were my favorite! The shrimp and peppers were cooked just enough so that they retained a little crispness and crunch. Just sublime!

I have no idea. This question needs to go to the restaurant itself, not consumers.
