Concern that many of the dishes are becoming more spicy. Turning some customers away due to that decision. I am having a harder time finding something that I like.

Our waitress forgot to bring barbeque sauce back to the table for my husband to use for his chicken fingers. He was almost done with his fries before we could catch her to again ask her to bring this to our table. The front of her black clothing was filthy like she had been working in the kitchen and not serving food. She was not overly friendly. There was dust along the wooden ledges and the restaurant needs an update. The toilets in the women's bathroom had water pressure issues and didn't fluss very good.

This was my first visit and I will definitely be back! The prices are a little higher than other Mexican restaurants, but once you get your food you will understand why! The burritos are gigantic!
