I went with my boyfriend here for the first time today and it was amazing! I had a strawberry margarita that was delicious. The queso and salsa was so fresh and hot. We both ordered chicken/steak tacos which were out of this world, everything tastes homemade. Our waitress was on point, refilled our drinks, sides, chips and was very courteous. We will definitely be coming back here as this is probably our new favorite place.
