Came back after a long absence. Didn't miss anything. Food is pretty typical, with perhaps a little more cheese than most places. Atmosphere is still fun, worth going to for just this. Service was weak, and the waiter got the change wrong. I did a...More

This place is a hidden secret on the island. Food is always good and bloody Mary's on Sunday is fantastic.

The place makes you feel like you are eating in a kitchen. The food is good and the owner always remembers us. (Of course, we do go here several times a month). It is one of our favorite places to eat Tex-Mex.
