This restaraunt had the best enchiladas I have ever tasted. The waiter did a really good job too. The only problem I had was that the dining area wasn't as clean as I would have liked. But I would recommend this place to anyone.

It's not. We were bummed! We found other restaurants that are. Bella's, Martyr's & La Cueva. Good Luck. We're coming down with our pooches in June 2017. Also, I read that Bent's Cafe allows dogs on the patio.
