Location Description:

This restaurant - described by its owners as "destination dining" for families on a budget - offers good food for not a lot of money, all in a gorgeously decorated, cathedral-sized dining room that's both grown-up and fun. Stick with traditional dishes like cheese enchiladas and beef fajitas, and don't forget to order Jimmy Changas's wonderful chipotle sauce on the side. Wait too long? Enjoy the fire-ringed waterfall outside on the patio while your kids run amok on the playground.
