    First time being there. I was actually celebrating my birthday yesterday because a friend recommended the place. Loved everything BUT I did feel a bit rushed. Our waiter was super nice and friendly but he kept coming asking us if we want to order our entries already. This really made me feel rushed… but like I said, other than this, EVERYTHING was amazing! Will be coming back for brunch!

    The slightest bit too crowded and noisy to be ultra-comfortable, but the food is good enough to make up for most of that. Mixing and matching tacos is the way to go.

    Waitress was wonderful! Food wasn’t worth the price. They also dimmed the lights at 4:30/5. Definitely too dark especially in the winter. Staff was accommodating due to our party being later. Great staff!

    The food here is amazing & the happy hour is spectacular. However they have a 90 minute seating time which is okay especially if it’s crowded. Friday it wasn’t crowded and we had reached our 90 minutes but we ordered food to go . First our waiter let us know 10 minutes prior to that we were at our 90 minutes which is why we ordered additional food to go while we waited, the hostess decided to come and also let us know about the 90 minute time as if our waiter didn’t tell us. Why couldn’t we wait for our food without her leaving the front to do the waitress job? To me this was extremely bothersome , because obviously we were already aware since our waiter is the person that is responsible for letting us know that, and not the Hostess . We were seated with our coats on. FYI there were 6 open tables & no one waiting to be seated.

    Beware they add 3% and 20% tip for parties of 6+. They called twice to confirm plus a text from OpenTable. Plus they want a $10 cancellation fee and a credit card to book. They have so many red flags IMHO. The waiter (Bryan) was kind of lazy/disintested in being attentive. He was super interested in enforcing a 90 minute time limit for the table. If you plan on kicking people out, which they did, you better get to the table more frequently. Food was good. It came very quickly so pace yourself. And the flavors were delicious. BTW there were 24 open seats when we left so not exactly in need of our table. They easily could have sold us desserts or another round of drinks.

    Mostly populated by the 25-40 crowd so it is loud but not unpleasantly so. Food menu was limited but good. I had the Flautas (4) which were crispy and delicious but the dish was overloaded with sour cream-I would have been happy with half the amount. My wife had the tacos. She described the beef as too salty and doesn't like raw onions, of which there was too much. For drinks I just had a beer (Pacifico) which was fine but was expecting a better selection given the clientele (though Ive been told that craft beer has lost its luster, I still like a variety. My wife had the recommended mescal cocktail, which she described as mediocre. Service was excellent. Attentive and quick. Overall, not bad, just not great. 3 stars.
