I had two different kinds of a la carte tacos and they were both wonderful!
I came here at the recommendation from a friend... we are always at a loss for where to go. There are so many great hideaways in NOLA. The waiter was great and open to answer every question we had. The prices were reasonable. Plus, we were seated by the patio with a view of the street and the sun beaming nicely.... it was a great spring day. The food portions are seemingly moderate, but all of us were more than satisfied, leaving some food on the plate. I will definitely be back, with a small group of friends.
This is more of a small bar than a restaurant...hightop tables only. Margarita was good, chips ok and the soft tacos were very good. Were there for lunch on a rainy day so not sure of the 'scene.'
We've had good luck lately finding little out of the way places we'd never heard of before on OpenTable. Our luck ran out with this one. It would better be described as a bar that serves tacos. All the tables are bar height, small two-tops. The place is tiny. Big screen TVs on every wall. We ordered a margarita and a mojito...both adequate, neither memorable. The second round was terrible...the mojito tasted like club soda and mint...the very nice waitress/bartender (who had made the first two) made another, but it wasn't any better. The queso was runny and barely stayed on the store bought chips. The salsa was more pico de gallo, but bland. The tacos were okay. With so many good options, it's hard to imagine ever returning.
Terrific menu, attentive service, and a few creative cocktail offerings. Décor is a bit Spartan but the food is the real deal.
Really great and fun location to come with a group of friends before going out! Not too expensive and some of the BEST guac in town...
The tacos were awesome and so were the servers. We made a last minute reservation without knowing anything about the restaurant, and it was pretty much the most happy accident.
Eat the Cochon de Mexicana taco. Drink the bloody maria.
The Guacamole was very good, everything else was mediocre and bland. The "hot" sauce was as hot as Taco Bell (so not at all). The tacos and beans were just average, not a lot of flavor. The chips were from a bag. Some more spices and/or herbs would help.
It was awful. Went took 20 min for someone to take are order. Then the food tasted like it came out of a bag and can. It was awful!!!!!! Then when came time to pay check they said they would discount out app which we did not ask for or expect. We thought it as nice but when they gave u the total it was not itemized n she stood there n waited for u to sign and tip. It was awkward. I would never go back nor would recommend
