    Fajitaları güzel.restoran baya popüler olduğu için akşam yemeği saatlerinde randevunuz yoksa sıra beklemeniz gerekiyor.
  • Kevin P.
    chips are homemade, margs are strong and fajitas are savory!
  • Dave H.
    Scratch cooking is worth the extra few dollars. Make sure to request the type of beans you want when you order. Get the swirl.

    We both loved our food. Black beans with fajitas lunch is my ugh. I was too full to care. Salsa was good Albuquerque style. Queso needs more pico & jalepeno

    The spicy shrimp fajitas were amazing! By far the best I've ever had. Also, don't forget to try the cajeta and sopapillas combo dessert. Delicious!

    Get a dough ball for your kid. They're a free child-pleasing diversion.

    I eat here often. Normally fast, excellent service. Don't sit at the tables in the bar area unless you want to be forgotten. I gave up after 25 minutes. Luckily its close to several other restaurants.

    The Guava-rita was very tasty. Fajitas for 1 could easily be shared for 2 with added tortillas. A little over priced.

    Reverse Swirl Meltdown. Only way to go. Mango Passion Lemonade is fantastic. Try Cowboy Queso. Also, try their Guadalajara and Carne Asada. You won't be disappointed. Cajeta for dessert is a must.
