I stopped in for lunch, and was shocked by Both the prices and how much food you get! I had the chicken mango quesadilla, and it was amazing. I also had a margarita (check for their daily specials) and churros (totally worth the calories). This will definitely be a new local hangout!

Tamarind Margarita might be something you should try!! The ambiance, the decor, the service was just right. You get chips and salsa as soon as sitting down and there is a salsa-bar ( very Texan) love it. The table side guac was deliciously delicious!!
