    Went for taco tuesday 3$ taco deal is a must! Great taco toppings and portions. Also the queso and chips are super unique and delicious. Tried an array of margarita flavors and specials and they were all great!

    Grabbed a last minute reservation after a conference in the city. Spot on street-style tacos, loved the empanadas and fresh salsa & guac. Probably the best stateside margarita I’ve ever had! I’d go back any day.

    I love mexican food and this was one of my favorite restaurants. Chips were top notch, queso was flavorful, mixed green salad was delicious, and we loved all of the tacos we tried - both chicken tacos, special pork tacos with pickled red onions, and the fish tacos. The margaritas were heavy on sour mix would be my only complaint.

    Solid guacamole albeit on the chunky side, which I like, but something to note. Tacos are tasty, baja shrimp was my fav. Anejo margarita was A+.

    Despite having a reservation we still had to wait 30 mins for our table and then felt like we were being rushed through our meal. Our check was handed to us despite the fact that we weren’t finished eating or drinking and had planned on having more to drink, but we decided it was best to leave. The food and drinks were great but sadly the wait time and service was disappointing

    Food was great! Despite having a reservation we sat for 10 minutes before our server approached us. We ordered right away and our drinks took 15 minutes and then just sat on the bar so I went to get them myself as our food was arriving. We only saw our server one more time before paying.

    Wait service personnel were very pleasant, attentive, and worked effectively as a team. Drinks, appetizers, and food were all delivered in a prompt and efficient manner. Food was great and there were very interesting choices. We never felt hurried, yet we were out of there in less than an hour from start to finish, with appetites satisfied. Price was very reasonable.

    The food was great. The queso dip was delicious as were the tacos (1 fish, 1 shrimp). The pineapple margarita... very weak. I hadn't had any alcohol for 30 days. That drink should've made me a little loopy. Nope, just sweet tasting and no alcohol effects. For $12 a drink, put some tequila in the drink! I do love the vibe here, I'll be back. The price is what is expected. But again, put the liquor in the alcoholic drinks.

    Decent, with some drawbacks based on what I expected from Google and TripAdvisor. Tortillas are not home-made. Chips are not home-made (but come to the restaurant in huge industrial plastic bags, as one can see if you glance toward the kitchen). I don't think any sauces are home-made. I asked for fresh hot peppers and got canned jalapeños. Overall adequate but nothing special. You can get much better from an authentic food truck.
