  •  Service was excellent!

    55555 by Rene R.

  •  The food was good. The restaurant was not busy at all and it took us 40 minutes to get food. The waitress didn't pick up any of the dirty dishes or empty chips/dips containers, and there were a lot.

  •  The chimichanga dinner is great. I recomend it and there has always been good service. I accidently left my phone there and they were very helpful. Thank you to the staff!

  •  Check for hair in your food. I only recommend coming here if you have free coupons or gift certs. The service, nor the food, is anything that you would want to waste your money on...

  •  Pretty sure most of their budget goes to buying salt because its 50% of any food. Feeling horribly ill after!!

  •  Don't get the chicken chimichanga. Better yet, don't get any food here. It's just plain terrible.
