It was Valentine’s Day so I brought my fiancé there for a solid taco meal and the ambiance. We were one of the first couples to be sat upstairs and were sat next to a group table that was empty. Little did we know that the group that was coming in would be hovering over our table shouting back and forth at each other. Given the tight seating - this ruined the ambiance and we ended up leaving earlier than we planned.

I went here with my gal pals for my birthday. I had a discount, which was great. Also enjoyed the $5 margaritas (yum), a shroom taco, a mahi taco, and the empanadas (beef/chicken). All delish. Had good ice cream with a candle for dessert. Everyone had a good time. I love the table upstairs by the window :) We even got to watch the olympics too! Friends all seemed to enjoy their meals too.

We came all the way from Reston for the Fried Avocado taco and it did not disappoint. It was delicious. The tequila drinks were awesome too. My mahi taco was not that interesting and very fishy tasting, but the Avo taco was the best and worth the drive! The guac was also great. Loads of seating with the upstairs.

Small tacos are ordered a la carte, like sushi. Some flavor combos were great, some so-so. Very good guacamole. Cute place but EXTREMELY loud, both upstairs and downstairs.

Tried this place out for a friend's birthday and I wish I lived closer to eat there more often! Such good food and service. My favorite is the queso (to die for!) and the flounder fish tacos! Also, best margarita I've ever had! Will definitely be coming back next time I'm in town!

It was so noisy in the dining room (and at the entrance to the bathroom and kitchen, which was next to our table) we could barely hear ourselves talk. We never saw our original waiter after he came by for our drink order, and had a hard time flagging one down to ask questions about the menu as they came in and out of the kitchen. Then they took away the brunch menu (telling us brunch was over). After mentioning that there was little if any alcohol in our frozen margaritas, a very nice manager came by to speak to us, and to explain the process.

The food was delicious, drinks were overpriced given their small size. Service was good, not great.

If you feel like going to a frat house, then this is the place for you. Staff is immature and food isn't that great. So many better options in old town... highlight of the evening was being treated poorly because we didn't get drinks. Again, I'm sorry I'm not in a frat and actually happened to be out with a recovering alcoholic, so no bartender, for the 5th time I don't think we need some shots...
