    Free margarita at check-in! Unlimited chips served with three different sauces when seated. Fresh guacamole is def. recommended. The mains portions are pretty big and the pork chop is excellent.

    Great place for lunch it does get crowded. Everything that I've had was very good my fave is the fish burrito.

    Check in and get a free margarita. Be aware, though: the salt on the rim is spicy! You can ask for regular salt instead.
