    Hannah was an amazing server and to top off our experience, the food was amazing. You must try the short rib queso.

    The food was ok. I know a food truck that has way better street tacos, maybe that's what I was expecting. Short ribs was not mixed into the queso and the queso wasnt smooth. It was too lumpy, not chunks, but it wasnt smooth. Tequila was pretty good., I had the pineapple tequila. Not sure what the hype is about. The service was excellent. Atmosphere great.

    The food was flavored well, but it was cold. The meats in the tacos were very dry, chicken and pork. Our meal was on a Sunday, 8:30-9:00pm, so maybe it was related to being close to closing time. I would consider coming back during a busier time when the food is fresh.

    Just being brutally honest — Food was pretty good, it was wayyyy too loud inside, couldn’t hear our friends speaking/ we were yelling the whole night, and lastly our server was pretty odd, didn’t get social queues and would hover over us and stare. Not sure if we would go back!

    The tacos look small but man do they hit the spot. I got 3: the fried fish, fried shrimp, and carnitas. Very tasty. The only thing I ordered that I didn't like was the cucumber. Margarita. Much too strong of a cucumber flavor, maybe dial that back a little. I'll definitely be coming back!

    Upon arrival, we ordered an appetizer and food. The appetizer came out quickly. About 45 mins later, I realized we still had no food. I asked our waiter to check on the food. He agreed to do so and then came back to the table and said he checked and our food wasn’t being worked on… and asked what we ordered again. We re-ordered and he quoted us “about 2 mins”. The food arrived about 10-15 mins later and it seems like the waiter may have forgotten to put our order in to the kitchen but I wonder if he would have noticed had I never asked.

    We were greeted by 3 very pleasant young ladies, and were seated promptly. The mezcal margarita was perfect, as was the regular margarita. They were both a nicely balanced sweet-tart lime with just a hint of salt from the rim. The mix is house made fresh daily, and we were both impressed. The trio is a generous sized starter, and the guacamole helped put out the fire of the chipotle salsa. We enjoyed a shrimp and a fish taco, and ordered a third that was a combination of veggies with a kale slaw. They were all nice little three bite flavor bombs! I can’t wait to go back and try something new. The salads looked awesome too, and I loved the names… Loretta, Johnny, and Willie. I wish I remembered our server’s name. He was so attentive and helpful. Job well done by all.
