    Very good quality, family run business. Wait staff very good. Food always the same, very consistent, if you like it this week on Tuesday, it will be the same on next Friday, that's compliment. Enjoy!

    Nice restaurant to go to on a chill night. Or take your family or something. Get fajitas and a margarita (too sweet) and kill like 4 bowls of chips. I dunno, it's fun.

    Try the calabacitas dish. It's Mexican zucchini with cilantro rice. I always get a side of beans too. Enough for two meals :-)
