Don't get me wrong. The food is really pretty good and the place is clean and the service was really good. Prices are average. I just don't like the building. They only have seating in 1/2. The lights shine down in your face. It certainly was not a inviting fun atmosphere. Sorry it feels like you got all of the... More

My last visit was only okay. Portion sizes are on the smaller side, prices are on the higher side for quality and quantity. Meat was over cooked and skimpy. Probably will not return, unless I hear of changes

Visiting for the first time with another couple who enjoy this location, we were received well as they were obviously recognized. While noticing the ample space, we were seated quite promptly, with the offer of drinks, then given ample time to view the menu. Chips and sauces arrived. I ordered the same entree as did our friend as I was... More

We come here once or twice during the summer. The food has always been great. This visit they refilled the chips. I really like their home made guacamole. There are 3 Mexican restaurants in Dixon and we try to go to each one at least once during the summer. This restaurant has a medium sized menu and the serve is... More

My family and I ate here a couple weeks ago on a Sunday. The atmosphere is alright...not great, but not bad. The service was very good. The waiter was at our table right after we got settled in with chips and salsa. The chips are quite good. Our food came quickly and was quite tasty. For the three of us... More

This is the first time this year we have been here and the first time with friends. We arrived and we impressed that the parking lot had a lot of cars. We have come several times since it opened and their have been only 2 or 3 cars. We were promptly seated. Our waiter Rick took our drink order and... More

Stopped here on the way through Dixon since it was on a main drag. We were skeptical because there were only a couple of cars in the parking lot, but once we started eating our skepticism disappeared. The chips and salsa were really good and you also get a seasoned Ranch dipping sauce that was very good. We ordered a... More
