    Food was great. The restaurant has a really nice low key vibe and the decor was really cool. The only sort-of complaint is that we weren't able to watch the 76ers game while at the restaurant...we expected to be able to since the restaurant in south Philly. Good spot and would definitely go back again.

    Food was top rate and reasonably priced. We were just there for happy hour and sat outside -- hence the noise from Passyunk Ave. The nachos al pastor were beyond delicious, the guac was great too, and we love the margaritas with salt and chili powder on the rim. My third time here and I'll be back.

    The food was very good, service was lack luster. Out food came out very staggered and they forgot one persons order entirely and we had to wait about 20 minutes for hot sauce. Our waitress could have checked in in more frequently, they were not very busy.
