Sunday February 19,2017 my 3 out of town girlfriends had lunch and it was unanimous that the meals were yummy. The pineapple fajita was excellent! The chicken, veggies and grilled pineapple was tasty. Will definitely order that special again.

We have dined here several times. The food is OUTSTANDING. We like to try their daily specials (which are usually discounted $1-2 from the normal menu price) and we have always been very happy. I tend to eat the same thing at a restaurant because...More
