Great food, great drinks. Great service. Street Parking tough but lots of garages close by. Ordered grilled octopus...delicious, tuna taco’s and fish tacos so tasty, thumbs up to the guacamole, rice and beans were great, queso dip was so good I was scraping the dried skin off the bottom of the bowl. You will enjoy if you love Mexican food.

Fantastic food, extremely flavourful.
The pork nachos are one of the great starters of our time!
Not somewhere to come for quiet conversation!

Loved! Didn’t know where to go with friends and didn’t want anything too heavy. We ordered guacamole 3 separate kinds of tacos and cheese dip. Everything was great. The margarita (house) is a must. We asked our waiter after we checked out to stay for drinks and he was very nice about it. Perfect just what I wanted . The price is a taaaad expensive for Mexican . I will be returning .

Excellent food, I keep coming back here often. However I wish the host takes it a notch down, they act like bouncers and behave as if they are in NYC. But the food compensates for the rude host.

The service was really bad. When we got seated and placed the order, the server told us that we have to place all the entree order in one go and CANNOT order more food, if needed. I have never heard this one before and when I confronted him, he goes “it’s busy today and you learn something new”. Didn’t appreciate the service provided.

The food overall is average and pricy for a Mexican place. You are better off eating at Taqueria downtown. If don’t make a reservation, your wait time can vary from 30-90 minutes, depending on day and time.

We love the food here - I'd say some of the best in Jersey City. The noise level is always just a bit much though dinner is manageable - brunch is deafening. It is expensive - you could get a comparable meal in the city for less but I guess in this case you are paying for NOT heading over the river? Again though, food is delicious.

This is a cool place to be seen. It is crowded, loud and attracts a young and hip crowd. We had to wait for our reservation and the bar is packed tight. The wait staff is inexperienced and unapologetically not great. The waiter dropped a tray of plates when clearing the table next to ours. He picked up the plates and left the nasty left-over food and chicken bones on the floor next to us for us to enjoy. Our waitress never brought part of our order. The food is interesting and the guac was good. It is a good place for loud conversation and groups, but not a quality dining experience.
