    I like the atmosphere and the food here is really good. The owner of this place is a good guy as well. I'm always looking for a way to save especially when making food selections because I spend a lot on food. So I do not like that they do not offer specials, food combinations or have any special dish days (Taco Tuesday, ect.). Other than that this place is great and I definitely recommend it. Prices are not bad and they give you quality food.

    I rarely write a review and I've never given one star but I after my experience last night I feel like it's appropriate. First, let me start by saying the one time I tried the food, last week, it was quite good. I called in my order for a chicken burrito and asked if the kitchen could please just add the ingredients to a to go container without the tortilla. The person over the phone happily agreed, explaining they've had multiple customers ask for this as well. This pleasant experience prompted me to order it again last night. I called up on my way home, ordered the a steak burrito (gotta switch it up) and a different person also had no problem putting this order in. However, a minute later they called back telling me they could not do this. I reiterated the simplicity of my order (just no tortilla) and again I was told they would not do this. I could however order the basically the same thing as an entree for 5 dollars more. I asked why they couldn't do what they did one week ago with no problem & why they wouldn't make an order that is simpler than the original. The person didn't have an answer and just asked if I wanted the entree, to which I replied I'm good and hung up. I'd be happy to change these stars if the owner or manager could explain the reasoning behind this / resolve this.

    Joined friends for dinner here. Multitude of dishes had, all were on par. Service was solid. Prices reasonable, and it's BYO which makes for an inexpensive night out. Chips were leaning overcooked and underseasoned. And when they ask you if you what spiciness level you'd like, I am disappointed to say the "hot" level of spiciness needs quotes. It barely registered as spicy, and I'm not a smoker or a hophead. Having said that, I'd def try again to see if it was just an off-evening

    Great neighborhood spot. The steak and shrimp with chimichurri is amazing!
