- …the staff was extremely friendly. Our waiter was on top of his game. Watching the other staff, I could see they hired people who knew what they were doing. And, doing it while still being courteous. – Diego S., downtown location
- My husband and I love the fact that they make your salsa right there at your table and can make it as spicy or mild as you like. It's served with fresh, warm chips and a side dish of bean dip, my personal favorite. – Irene P., Anderson Lane location
