Have been here twice before and had a great experience both times…..brought a group here for a family dinner on my recommendation on a Sunday at 530 and was not pleased. Drinks took 35 min after they were ordered and not good……food came out 45 min after drinks came! Two orders of fajitas were burnt and a kids order of chicken tacos had very spicy chicken in it. I’m all about a one off so I’ll give it another chance but this was a miss a big miss and I doubt the other two couples I went with will ever be back. Bummer of an almost 300 meal.

The ambience was cute, but the food was too American to be Mexican. Nothing tasted authentic. Disappointed

I have Celiac disease and they always accommodate my food requirements. Food is excellent, fresh, and interesting flavors. Love love the tacos. Even the gluten free tortillas are yummy. Also, best margaritas you will ever have. Not your typical Mexican restaurant.

Nice atmosphere. Even though restrictions have been lifted, we were still seated far enough apart, that the next table wasn’t able to hear our conversation. Matera was our sever and did a pretty good job, being that this was her first day serving on her own. She constantly kept coming back to check on us. We had tacos (shrimp and fish) for dinner and they were pretty tasty. The blood orange margarita was delicious. I will definitely go back. They also offered take home margaritas that were $10. My friend got one to go. Parking could be a little better but that’s almost everywhere.

Cocktails and apps are great! I’d love to just go back for happy hour. Tacos not bad but don’t need to be fried. Shrimp/fish would be better grilled or sautéed, or less batter- not flavorful at all.

The service was great . The food everything was super saucy and my husband usually gets Sea-bass Veracruz had too much sauce he felt as thou he was eating Italian dish . We had brought our Friend’s for first time and they order as per Our recommendation and the food failed to impress them . I usually order chilie Poblanos and that too was super saucy and tasted sour may too much tomatoes.
Too bad the restaurant failed to impress our friends. While we have dined multiple times this past experience with food fails to entice us back to Resturant.

Hannah was excellent. I had left my credit card and I was called to inform me I had done so. Very nice young man was waiting for me as I pulled up to bring my card to my car. I highly recommended dining at this restaurant.

I have Celiacs and they made the fish tacos gluten free. I have never had such flavour explosion like I did with those absolutely delicious tacos. My husband had the pork tacos and they are also GF! My new favourite Mexican restaurant!!!! And the coconut pomegranate cocktail was yummy too!

This was one of the best dining experiences we have had. Service was great! Atmosphere is clean and comfortable. Food was absolutely stellar. My dad had the breakfast burrito and said it’s the best he has ever had (we lived in TX and he has had a lot of breakfast burritos). Drinks were fresh and well made. What a great experience... we will most definitely be back.

Hanna was our server. She did an excellent job. She was personable and all about customer service. Really enjoyed our dinner for 5. We will return. Food was felt. We all ordered something different. Can't go wrong ordering anything off the menu. My friends enjoyed the margaritas too. Have fun. Thank you Hanna 👍👍👍

As usual the luncheon offerings were very tasty and with very adequate portion sizes.
Tried the mushroom tacos which were very good and nicely seasoned.
Service was attentive but not intrusive.
Was lunching with a friend for the first time in awhile and we had lots to chat about. There was no pressure on us to leave after finishing our main course.
