Great limey fresh guacamole and tasty margarita. The fish taco was ok and the huitlacoche was good. The place was packed inside, so it was difficult to have a conversation. I wasn't blown away, but think they're using quality ingredients and have good overall experience.

I would’ve given it 5 stars across the board until the hostess was short and rude to us. She blamed it on the noise level but I’m not too sure. When I expressed my disappointment with her attitude she brushed me off and never apologized.

Food was excellent. Prices we a bit much but nothing I couldn't live with for a night out. DAMN IS IT LOUD IN THERE! You had to literally yell across the table to be heard so I would not recommend this restaurant to a couple trying to have a conversation. If you're looking for a fun spot to eat with an energetic atmosphere and you don't mind some noise then this is a great place to visit. Two words - Pineapple margaritas!

Food and drinks were very good and prices were reasonable. It’s a pretty limited menu but everyone should be able to find something they like. Tacos and roasted cauliflower were excellent. Very good selection of liquors from tequilas to bourbons. When crowded, which is usual during prime hours, it’s a little loud but definitely worth a visit for casual dining.

Overall it was a solid place. The food was solid and service was pretty good. The only thing was that it was so loud you can’t hear the person you are with for dinner. I understand that it’s a Saturday but at some point you want to have a decent conversation. Overall 7/10

Decided to try this before a Redwings game. Food was excellent and the cocktails were delicious. It was a little loud for our tastes but not terrible. Our server was very soft spoken and the noise level made it difficult to hear her, but otherwise the service was very good. We will definitely eat here again.
