    Cons: Inexperienced manager.

    Summary: Happy Hour menu has changed and Happy Hour is now much more expensive with less variety and smaller portions. It wasn't the best Happy Hour to begin with but now it's not worth the drive. The house margaritas are worth the Happy Hour pricing but ... read more

    Pros: The Big Borderito. Guacamole. Lively Atmosphere. Reasonable prices.
    Cons: The queso sauce. Did I mention the queso sauce? Not that great.
