    7pm reservation for 2 outside, @ 7:20pm went back to hostess because no one had come to wait on us. 5 minutes later we had a waitress, ordered 2 waters, 1 drink, an app and the free chips. 10+ minutes passed and finally we had water, followed by my drink a few minutes later... 15 minutes more to finally get the appetizer...still no chips. Finally after another 20 min we received the chips and were able to order our main course (kind of). Side note: The splitting plate option for $6 is a great deal, they split the protein and u each get 2 sides. However... when we got our chicken kabobs and asked where our sides and tortillas were, the runner replied with "they are on their way." Nope... several more minutes pass before we can ask the waitress and then she comes back with only 1. Needless to say it would be several more minutes for the 2nd side to arrive. Refill on waters was also super slow. The closing out/payment part was probably the fastest service of the night. 2 hrs and 40 minutes for a party of 2 all caused by the service. The food is great but not sure with the service the way it is, it is worth it. I wish they would have been upfront if there was a staffing issues or new servers... that would have helped. We tipped our waitress 18% because we know most times it is not their fault... but it needs to be fixed which is my reason for leaving the LONG review.

    We had a great time. Our server took great care of us. The only reason she didn’t get the extra star was while she was nice and polite, she just wasn’t super engaging. The food and drinks were wonderful as always. We had a shrimp quesadilla, fish tacos, and chicken tascada salad. We also had the trio of guacamole, cheese dip and subbed verde salsa for 3 pepper. It was all great. The cheese dip was a step up from your typical mexican restaurant. And the skinny coconut margarita was perfect, just wish it was bigger. lol One of my party enjoyed the pineapple margarita as well. This is easiest my favorite mexican restaurant in Canton and I love that they take reservations. I’ll be back.

    Gave this a try after mixed reviews..for a sat night it was dead. Most of the tables were not cleared and the first two chairs I sat in were broken. Food was okay but not worth the price. Service was good and good selection of beers etc. will be surprised if this place lasts…hoping they can turn it around.

    This is a hidden gem in plain site! Having a community venue right outside their doors makes this a great location when going to all kinds of events. The food is great especially the homemade guacamole! Just so many great choices. The only con to this restaurant is the noise level. The service is great! The prices are on par with other restaurants of this type. They even offer togo options since there are so many events in this location, as well as outdoor seating. We will definitely be going there again!

    Food is overpriced and a bit bland. Bar service is fine for beer and wine but the signature cocktails lack depth and proper crafting. Nice looking place without much value or specialty in the menu. Plating is right out of the 80’s and no one should charge for chips and bland salsa. Please salt the food.

    The food was good. Unfortunately, the waitress seemed buzzed, which left us wanting her not to touch our food or drink. The atmosphere is much more casual than the price would lead you to expect. The layout didn’t lend itself to much privacy either. In general it just felt overpriced for the experience.

    We finished our appetizer and meal and one of our party had never even received his first drink, not even a water. The waitress charged us for two drinks that we ordered - she brought one drink after we finished our meal (which wasn’t the drink that we ordered) and never brought the other. She put both drinks on our tab, but the manager took the drinks off.

    When you first walk in, the atmosphere seems upbeat and a lot of fun! We were very excited to have an impromptu date night here! We did make a reservation, but once we arrived we saw there were open seats at the bar and let the hostess know we would sit there. We waited almost 20 minutes at the bar to be greeted. Once we were greeted, Caleb had a smile that lit up the room and brought back hope of a good experience here. Unfortunately, they did not seem to have enough staff to run in an efficient manner. Our food took a little over an hour to get to us and when it did, it was the wrong order. The manager came over and promised it would be just a few more minutes and it would be out. We waited another 20 minutes and the manager finally came with our food. I ordered the mahi tacos and my boyfriend ordered the pastor tacos. The food was incredibly underwhelming for me. My boyfriend thought his tacos were just ok but nothing worth the price we paid for our meals. Now, I did order the house margarita and it was actually very good! Still a little pricey for a house margarita, but we did know going into it that the prices were a little higher than average for Tex-Mex type food. Overall, I gave it three stars because despite the shortage of staff everywhere, the food was not worth the price I paid, multi-tasking is key in the service industry and it did not seem that there were many there who could handle that; maybe more thorough training if possible. We probably would not return, but really did like our server who did his best with a smile on his face!

    We were seated and orders were taken. Then, we waited and waited some more. Took forever to get drinks, then it took forever to get appetizers, and then forever again to finally get entrees. Seated at 8 and out of there at 9:30. That’s a normal timeframe for fine dining with courses but not for a tacqueria. The food was heavy, greasy and just okay. The waitress was nice but that can only go so far when the wait time is that long and the food is average at best for the price. It’s local and in a good location, however we won’t be back.

    Pricey for TexMex! First off, our Service was great(which is only reason I gave 2 stars, everything else unfortunately was sub-par. I would expect food to be premium quality for the price. 2 people: 2x 2 Taco meals, Guacamole, and 2 Margaritas -> $81 w/tip Pork Belly tacos had over cooked meat; Shrimp tacos were cut up shrimp and under cooked; the guac was way too salty… the yellow corn chips did not have a good flavor… + you don’t get nacho chips and salsa automatically like a traditional Mexican restaurant would provide. We can eat for less and get better food and drinks by going to traditional Mexican establishments. We won’t be back!

    Love the atmosphere, great addition to Canton dining. Manager/owner (not sure which) was very attuned to my wife not being enthusiastic about one dish. He picked up on it, made it right, and left us happy to return. All other dishes were perfect and really unique. Can’t wait to return.

    Table for 4 at 7pm on a Saturday. Somewhat busy but by no means slammed. Service was good but food took a very long time. Tacos all around. Margarita prices were puzzling...frozen cost $3 more than rocks, for exact same drink. Overall was a 3-star experience.

    Our first experience here was great but a few weeks later was very different. We were not greeted by our server for quite a while and only after a manager realized we had not been served. One person in our party ordered soup and the server asked if she wanted it now or with dinner. She said now. Next thing we knew our food came out and the soup never came out. Our server did not come back to the table until we were done eating. We told her about the soup and had her take it off. It took a long time to get our checks and to pay. A totally different experience from our first visit. Hopefully they figure everything out.
