    Ask for Kayla. She rocks! The food was not that bad and the service was excellent. I don't know why do many people are hating on this place. You can sit outside too.

    The people that rave about how good the food is must have been paid to leave those reviews or they are friends of the owner. Seriously, you would more enjoy a frozen microwave burrito from the store.

    Ordered cheese quesadilla and it was pretty good. Get it without onions because otherwise it's super greasy...

    Pretty generic. The salsa in the chips and salsa is just canned stewed tomatoes with some chili peppers so don't waste your money

    Willing to bet all the bad servise comments are from people that sat themselves instead of reading the signs that say come inside and wait to be seated.

    Ordered the Steak Tacos, which taste really good, but there are only two of them & it took a really long time. 4/5 for taste, 2/5 for time, 2/5 for cost.
