    Great food that's very affordably priced. The blackened chicken caesar salad is the best. Plus they start you with fresh warm nachos and salsa. I like to add the Pastelitos as an appetizer.

    Love the gumbo. Great loaded fajitas. Jambalaya is very good. Best brewed iced tea around. Hot fresh salty chips and salsa. Camptown shrimp. You can't go wrong up and down the menu

    The best Fajitas, beef burro, and Campton shrimp on the US. I love this resturant. I used to go their branch in Delaware. They are really professional. It's my favorite restaurant ever.

    Great prices and great food that comes very quickly. Highly recommended. Wait time if you come during a busy period (ex. Friday/Saturday night), but nothing unreasonable.

    Pretty much always a wait for a dinner table but it goes by quickly. The quesadillas are ginourmous, definitely a full meal from the appetizer menu.

    Make sure you come early because the wait is always insane, but totally worth it. Try the chimichurri steak!!

    If the place seems packed, try to get a spot at the bar or one of the cocktail area tables. You can still order food and won't have to deal with the wait.

    I have been eating at the one in Woodbridge since the early 90s. I was so happy when I found this one with the same food and less wait times.

    Everything is delicious, particularly anything blackened. The Route 66 chopped salad is great for a lighter meal

    They forgot to bring out an appetizer and instead sent out our entrees. Besides that, overall OK. I must say the Chips are pretty good.

    Great place to take the family for some great, cheap eats. Many times my kids order off the regular menu and they still give them candy at the end!

    Nice atmosphere. The food wasn't too bad either, however they need to learn how to make a Bloody Mary though behind the bar

    If you're getting a salad, ask for the Chipotle Lime sauce as a dressing.

    They took the fried plantains off the menu and replaced them with fries - a travesty.
