    I shan't eat here again. The service was fine, the staff were friendly, but I found the food to be sub-par and overpriced. Also, I felt dismayed when I saw the pumpkin pie served to other customers. It's clearly some cheap pie made elsewhere. The crust looked particularly atrocious. I felt bad for the diners who ordered this dessert.

    The thanksgiving special was adequate but nothing special. The fry bread was soaked in grease. The fish tacos had not quite 2 bites of fish.

    Though reservations were made with special note as date night, we were sat at the front of the door which was not ideal w the cold weather. We were not offered special menu for Dia De Los Muertos. Food was great, server was friendly. Just disappointed about how reservation seating was handled.

    Tacos were by far the best thing we ate. The snapper was a bit pricy for what it was. However, tacos and drinks were absolutely delicious!

    Had never heard of fry bread before so we were happy to try it. So good! We had many of the different tacos and they were all good. Good flavours - the best was the fish taco! Also the simple margarita was perfectly balanced with just lime, agave and tequila. Perfect lunch!

    We had the queso fundito, tacos a la carte, and chicken enchiladas. Service was really slow. I enjoyed my enchiladas but the tacos were really small and the food was so spicy my friend could barely eat any of her meal. Overall, decent but would probably try a different Mexican place in the city before coming back.

    We were excited for the bottomless brunch and were left underwhelmed. The salsas were the only item we ordered that had any flavor. We didn’t even finish cauliflower tacos and the fish tacos. The carne asada tacos were ok. The margaritas were almost slimy. Won’t be a repeat for us

    Food was great, service was even better. We went for Mother's day brunch but our reservation was kind of late 1:15. Micheladas were ok, not great. There was some confusion about the menus since their brunch menu ended at 2pm and they have a menu that is called "all day menu" some people figured it would be available at anytime but it would not be available until after 2 pm. So few people from our table had to wait to order their main dish. Thankfully we had appetizers to get us started.

    Wow, big thanks to Kachina. We had a party member get ill and unfortunately it was right outside the front door, and right after we left our meal. For the record, the illness had NOTHING to do with the food, which was great as usual. They did everything they could to make sure she was ok, and they were awesome about the whole thing. Our apologies to the restaurant and our gratitude for the way they handled it. The food is always outstanding and the staff did an amazing job. Thank you-

    After being seated, it took 15 minutes before anyone checked in with us. When the server finally came, she informed us the menu was through the QR code and left again. We finally put in our order for drinks and food close to a half hour after we sat. The chips and guacamole came quickly. Then came our meals. My friend ordered a kale salad. The greens were not kale. Finally the first round of drinks showed up. Service was slow. The tacos I had were pretty good and my friend thought her salad was just okay.
