This restaurant is on the corner with seating outside which is casual and comfortable. The inside is well decorated and casual also. The waitstaff was good. The veggie fajitas were average. Hot sauce, chips and queso were average.More

While it is hard to find a place to eat without college kids downing alcohol this is the place to come to, to get away from all that. Good food, quiet atmosphere and no beer bongs..
