You can elect to start the night off with their famous bean dip and crispy chips, or customize a delicious quesadilla with your choice of added meat like chicken or steak or vegetables for the perfect starter to your meal. All their quesadillas are prepared with their fresh homemade tortillas, which are made every morning. These pair up perfectly with their Specialty Centennial Margarita or any of their other 8 specialty margaritas. A cold import beer such as a Modelo Especial or a XXAmber would also make a great companion for you meal.
