This place was a find. We have lived in Scottsdale many years, but did not know about it. We went for Taco Tuesday, which is the absolute best.

I was only able to request outdoor seating which was fine, but when I arrived, I was able to request bar seating.

Food was excellent, you really need to try the Queso Dip. I went for the Tacos a la carte and three were excellent as well.

I also tried the jalapeño and cucumber margarita. The flavor was great and not just spice.

The restaurant was full so the food did take a minute but was well worth it!

We asked for a booth but were told it would be a 40 minute wait, even though we had a reservation and arrived 15 minutes early. That was the only disappointment.

They seemed a little short handed which is happening everywhere. Our server was rushed and seemed to not want to be there. The food was pretty good. I would go back and try it again.

Usually all 5 Stars but last night was hopefully just a one off. Had chips on floor and food was not the normal 5 Stars as “enchilada style” burrito just barely had any sauce on it.

Highly disappointing. Upon arrival was told that there was a “glitch” in our reservation and the only seating available was outside. Manager apologized before we were seated and provided $5 off our bill for the mixup. Table outside was not wiped down and birds visited prior to our seating. We wiped the table down ourselves. Server never check on us for refills. Food was ok, but the rice seems to be reheated, it’s not fresh. Had to ask other staff for drink refills and the check, with the response, “ I’ll tell your server.” Server did show up to provide the bill. Patron Beware! Upon receiving our bill tip was preselected. I had to check it myself. Pity, place had promise but fell well short.

Last minute trip created challenges in finding reservations in Old Town Scottsdale, so was glad to find this option. Ambience (indoor/outdoor seating) was pleasant, menu options good for value, excellent housemade guac. Service was a bit rushed and impersonal, but overall enjoyed the meal.

The service was not great. I had to tell her I wanted to order an appetizer and dessert.

The restaurant was not at capacity but drinks took forever. The pineapple tequila was delicious though.

Way too many TV screens for my taste, but the food is excellent, especially the fresh guacamole, topped with pomegranate seeds for an interesting twist, and the ceviche. We loved our jalapeño/cucumber margaritas as well. Many of the wait staff were not wearing masks, which made me a bit uncomfortable as a tourist, but other diners didn't seem to mind.
