Love the food. Authentic Mexican is hard to find and our lunches exceeded expectations. Delicious, colorful and savory. Our server smiled and attention to us was superior. I had the Pozole and enjoyed it. We will be back.

Poor service. Waiting time too long. Need more servers. Couple next to us obviously on date became so exasperated that they stopped talking, were fed up and resorted to phone interaction exclusively. After a long time their cocktails came with their food. Servers busy with large boisterous group.
No accompaniments or veggies of any kind with plates.

A lovely spot in a retail setting. We sat outside, a covered, open area. I had the cevice and it was delicious!. Great melon margarita. Service was excellent with a personable server. Will definitely go again.

The food is top notch. I travel and eat modern Mexican food all over and this ranks among the best food and margaritas ever. And the owner is muy caliente too. What a bonus!

Delicious, lots of alcohol options. Geared more towards adults. A bit pricey: appetizer, 3 meals, 3 cocktails, dessert ~ $115. Still I enjoyed it, was a pretty quiet, yet bbusy late Sunday afternoon. Good service.

Sat outside on nice covered patio. Although you are right next to Lucky’s you barely notice. Service tried to be good but there were errors and long waits. He was apologetic and friendly but we were there much longer than should have been with all the mixups and delays. The drinks there are fabulous!!! The food is fair and a little pricey. I had the potato pancakes which were pretty good. I heard the chicken quesadilla was good. Their chips are think and crunchy and definitely get the guacamole... some of the best I’ve had. Overall, I’d say drinks and chips with guacamole is the way to go!!!

This is a fabulous Mexican themed restaurant-
Every dish we had was extremely well flavored- not sure it would be acceptable for individuals that do not like spicy food - for the average person it would be spicy for us it was perfect.

Service was another story- not very knowledgeable about the food, server looked confused and food preparation was slow.

But regardless- the food is worth getting through all that.

This food is so unique Mexican. Beautiful presentation, fresh flavors. Do not miss the ceviche. It has avocado, cukes, chips with fresh rock shrimp. Eat by itself as your main. The portions are generous. I highly recommend. Try the yummy sangria.

Super fun. Waiter was adorable and even made us a special straw for my wine when I jokingly asked. Extra effort to make our experience fun and funny sweet.

Over all it was good. It small inside therefore it’s loud. Nice server. Quick to get our food. It’s a good casual dinner. And great margaritas! I understand there are some amazing French fries??? We did not get some, but heard about them, and will go back to have some and a Rita or two!!

Tables are very close~ squished together too tightly in my opinion. Both tables on either side intruded into our conversation. Weird. Food is great! Service was so so.

It was a rainy Valentine's Night and the place was packed. We had reservations, inside, which was good cuz everyone on the heated patio sat down bundled up and nobody took any layers off. Our server Daniel kept apologizing for the slow service but he was blameless and working very hard. Oddly, at a place that prides itself on excellent margaritas and similar drinks, there was only one bartender and that process was visibly slow. When the food arrived, it was excellent, I mean Great. and they comped our 2nd margarita, so all forgiven. Not that we were feeling slighted, whatever issues were in kitchen and behind bar, the servers were impressive.

Cold food. 4 people not served together. 2 served then at least 10 minutes before the others served. Had to ask for meals to. Be served. Ordered another round of drinks and had to ask for them to be served after about another 10 minutes or so Really a bad experience. And we had been there least 5 times before so a big disappointment Embarrassing as we had brought an out of town guest

I had the spicy seafood stew..It was excellent. Had the finish of it the next day at lunch. My friend had the braised short ribs and said it was very good as well. Cocktails are fabulous. Can’t wait to return.

A hidden gem with authentic Oaxacan food. The food has layers and layers of flavors. They have a ton of different tequilas and have a wonderfully priced tequila tasting menu.

Food was nothing special. Salsa had a smoky one dimensional flavor. My fish tacos had a strong flavor of oil. Good chips and Guacamole. Staff friendly. Busy parking lot. Ambience was Chipotle plus. No draft beer. Plenty of Tequila choices but I did not sample any. Might be worth a happy hour featuring tequila drinks.

Enjoyable Mexican food with original delicious salsa and chips. House margaritas were absent sufficient tequila which is disappointing when you order a margarita even at happy hour.
