The homemade chips and salsa is a great appetizer and tastes amazing. I would recommend ordering the guacamole, it was very fresh and tasty. The spinach white cheese dip is also very good. I ordered the soft shell chicken tacos and was pleased with the delicious taste and great deal. The tacos had chicken, lettuce and cheese – I added salsa to mine. One order of tacos was very filling as they’re decently sized. Although the tacos were simple, the flavor was pretty good considering the price point.
