My team went here after a tournament. There were 21 of us there and they were very nice at helping us all sit together and ordering our food and drinks. Would eat there again if I am in the area.

Friendly staff and adequate parking. They have the best guacamole I've ever had. They make it at the table the way you want it. Great margaritas! The whole menu is excellent. The prices are very affordable.
