The food quality is getting worse. The salsa tastes like they opened a can of tomatoes and let it sit out all day next to the dry rice and beans. We have had the same server the past two times who NEVER comes to the table.

A fajita, even a lunchtime fajita should come with lettuce, pica de galo, and a bit of quacamole. The food needs to come out steaming. This came out on a plate. The food was very good but not hot.

Great margaritas. Also, if you want quantity go for "El Grande". It's two plates for the price of one.
