    Napales were ok - cactus was great, but beef was very fatty in spots.

    Told by some patrons in the party that orders were mixed up, food looked good on the plate but two people think the chile relleno gave them indigestion. The salsa was ketchup with spice. Noisy crowd.

    The salsa here is awful. It's a cross between ketchup and bbq sauce

    First impression is that this is a cougar den. $4 whiskey ginger was strong. No complaints here.
