    We made reservations last minute for a bottomless Halloween brunch for 7, and I'm quite happy we did. The food options were quite creative, with as many egg options as anyone could ever want. From scrambles to benedicts to huevos rancheros, the options were endless. One of the folks in our party got a sandwich with the jalapeno bacon--I did not have a taste, but it looked delicious and was completely gone by the end of the meal, so I think it's safe to say lunch and dinner options are also strong. We did the bottomless option ($14 on top of your entree price) and while you can't switch out between bloody mary's and mimosas, you can alternate between mimosas and the poinsettia mix, which I would recommend. Our waiter was probably serving a few too many tables, so my only qualm with the dining experience as a whole was a result of our drinks not being refilled quite as regularly as they should've been. Overall, great bottomless deal for a group, solid food and convenient location.

    They seemed understaffed for a Saturday brunch...there was only one server and hostess on the floor for the entire restaurant. We had to wait twenty minutes to be seated, even though I had a reservation. That is a huge pet peeve of mine! She was nice and the service was great overall, but it did influence wait time for seating, drinks, and food. I ordered the carnitas benedict and was pleased. The bacon was burnt to a black, brittle crisp. When my friend asked for more, they brought her an identical plate of bacon. It turns out they batch cook bacon in the morning, so if it's burnt, it's burnt until the end of brunch! Slightly disappointed by that. Overall, though, I would return, hoping for more staff on the floor.

    Dined here on a Saturday night and found the food quite good - we both had different versions of their enchiladas - one seafood and one pork. The margaritas we ordered to start were way too sweet for our taste so we switched after that to their nice selection of beers, including some unique ones. Also had an impressive list of tequilas, though we didn't partake in those. Service was probably the main issue as we were the only ones actually in the dining room (there were some people at the bar), but yet the server spent more time talking to other idle employes than serving us.

    We were there for brunch. The nice thing is that they have both brunch food and "daytime" choices. We started with calamari, which was OK but not special. We also had five different taco fillings. These ranged from OK (carnitas) to marginal (pale strips of "carne asada"). Nothing was at the standard of a good Southwest taco truck, which seems a change in a foodie city like DC.

    We ordered the Huevos Rancheros and the Cinnamon French Toast. Both dishes were absolutely delicious! I really enjoyed the seasoning on the yuca fries, but wish that they were a little thinner (you get four thick fries on the side of some orders). You can also choose breakfast potatoes, but I didn't try them. They also have a great brunch special for unlimited mimosas, poinsettias, and bloody mary's. I will definitely have to take part in that next time. I would definitely recommend this place! The food was really good!

    Food was good, especially carnitas sopes. Impressive beer and tequila list. Forgettable fish tacos.
