“Great atmosphere, food is just okay”
Reviewed 18 September 2013

Every time we go here, the food leaves a lot to be desired. We sit at the bar and the drinks and the chips and salsa are good, but the beef, no matter what we get, is always either overcooked or once it was raw. If you stay away from the beef, the food isn't too bad, but we really don't go that much anymore cause the food is disappointing.

“Average this time but generally better”
Reviewed 1 September 2013 via mobile

Went on Sunday night around 7, no sauce with the pork fajitas and it was a bit dry, and mine was a bit over cooked. It was much better last time though.

“Good Food !”
Reviewed 29 July 2013

If you're looking for a night of Mexican Food then give this place a try. The menu is varied and the prices are reasonable. The chips and salsa are a nice treat while waiting for your meal. Try to get there early as the lines can get quite large closer to the dinner hour.
