The food was great as usual except the truffle potato fries which was really ordinary.

Amazing customer service. We were running very late to our reservation, however, the manager was still able to seat us inside. The server was also exceptional. Great food and atmosphere.

The food was great I’m vegan. I come here just for the vegetarian tacos that comes with vegan meat. It’s so delicious. The service is great I would rate them above and beyond because it’s amazing.

But they have this stupid rule to make you get a reservation, but refuse to seat you until all your party arrives. I think this is because they can charge your credit card if your a no show. But hey your in New Jersey most patron are arriving by train from New York, they are late sometimes. It makes people upset

We visited as a group of 8 people and all of us had a great night out. Food was amazing as always. If I have one gripe it would be that the menu seems to have changed and that there wasnt as much choice as I had previously experienced. That said, I will reiterate that the food was incredible.

This is my favorite Mexican restaurant in NY/JC area. Most tacos are 50% off for Taco Tuesday!! (Cash only for the discount) the fish taco and bone marrow with crispy pork tacos are my favorites. Staff is friendly and attentive.

We are both vegetarians and really enjoyed the food - the guacamole is good but the salads are really awesome. I usually have mediocre veggie tacos at most places but these were really good. My friend likes her veggie enchiladas. Drinks were tasty too!

The food was excellent. Drinks were also very god. Service was great except it can get a bit busy, especially on Taco Tuesday so it can be a while in between visits by your waiter. Overall very good and will definitely come back to try more of the menu.

Atmosphere is young with modern murals in spray paint graffiti and high ceilings. Great vibe matching by excellent service and food. Churros were to die for. Highly recommended for a cool dinner. Hipster Mexican in a good way.
