We enjoyed the experience. The ambiance and decor was fun. The food was top notch. We enjoyed two flights, one of tequila and one of muscal. The server was a great help in choosing which tequila to taste.

I am usually too busy to write a review but had to take the time to on this one. We were going to a show at the DPAC and wanted to try something different for dinner. The food, drinks and service was awesome! We had queso and chips which were just spicy enough and then shared Chicken tacos which were perfect. The Margaritas were spot on. The place is a bit too noisy but other then that it was great!

Awesome food, great server (EMILY) -exactly what we wanted! All the tastes were great so just find what you like and order those things the way they decided to make em'. We will be returning and requesting Emily, who tended to what we needed, brought us chips every time we needed them and recommend great meals and desserts!

Really great tacos. Everything tastes so fresh, with nice contrasting flavors and textures with the ones we've had. This visit, we both had the fresh catch tacos. Very simple flour shell, mahi, cole slay and tomatilla. Excellent.

Fantastic food and fast, friendly service. It's a fun and casual atmosphere, if a bit noisy. Our table had guacamole, queso, two kinds of tacos, nachos, and Chiles Rellenos. Everyone was happy with their food and we will be back for sure!

The manager, Ryan, is a douchebag. Several mistakes occurred, and instead of apologizing and offering to comp our meal....I had to ask for it. He did, but it was his entire approach - lacking customer service.
