    I ate there for the first time in August and had a great meal. The pork quesadillas and chicken tacos for appetizers were very good. For an entree I got the pork tenderloin, which was absolutely delicious, and a very large portion. I recall that all the food was spicy (just the way I like it!), but if you're sensitive to spicy food you might want to share that when you order.

      Ate there and it was good, but no better than good. The pork tenderloin and tuna nachos were good, but don't expect to be blown away by anything on the menu.

        For appetizers, the pumpkin soup, fried oysters, and chicken tacos are all good. For entrees, skip the steaks, go for the pork tederloin, as its fantastic. The venison and 16-spice chicken are also good, but the pork is a signature.

          I love the chiles rellenos.
