    Start with the Black Bean Queso, some chips and a few drinks. I rarely make it past that, it's so good. Don't think of it as "filling up on chips", think of it as a light appetizer dinner.

    Shrimp habenero and shrimp fajita are awesome. They serve equally good nachos. One of the best hangout places is Redmond, impossible to get a spot on Friday evenings and they do not take reservations.
