had dinner there a week ago. the margaritas were good and reasonably priced. the salsa tasted fresh, maybe made on the premises. the mains were well prepared and flavorful. bottom line: not a knock-out, but definitely ok.

Lots of menu choices for carnivores or vegetarians. The chicken tacos are my favorite with the crabcakes coming in second. House margarita is yummy but expensive. Highly recommend this place!
