some of the best "street" tacos in town! Also, super good and fun margaritas.

It was Cinco de Mayo, so the restaurant was busy and loud. The food and drinks were good. Service was a bit slow, but to be expected on an event day. I'm happy that they were actually taking reservations this day and seated us close to our time. I'll be back when it's a bit warmer and the patio is open.

The elote was amazing and the beef brisket burrito (subbed the brisket for carnitas) was crazy delicious.

A nice neighborhood establishment. Great service and food was scrumptious. I did find the prices high which is why we won't be able to eat there on a regular basis like we do other neighborhood eateries. Loved it though.

The food and service were exceptional—delicious, creative and authentic Sonoran food for these former Tucson, Arizonans. Thanks for bringing us back to the desert!

We were seated inside, sat for 15 minutes and never greeted. No manager in site. The inmates were running the asylum.

Good food with adequate portions. Was a little rushed. The entrees came only a few minutes after the appetizer and ended up being cold. Not sure why the rush. It was pretty empty.

We live Sonora. The food is amazing. Everything was delicious (so not miss the empanadas). We order takeout regularly. The service was friendly and attentive. We sat outside and were distanced from folx and felt safe and happy to enjoy a meal outside before the snow hit today! Thanks, Sonora!

Delicious food! The empanadas are so amazing and if you get the queso, do yourself a favor and add the chorizo! A wonderful selection of tequila! Our server was knowledgeable and helpful and respected our social distance. I felt comfortable and safe and was aware of many steps taken to ensure our safe dining experience.

The food and service were amazing as usual, but the Covid protocols have stripped this place of its ambiance. I love that they’re doing such a great job of following the guidelines, but bright fluorescent lights and no good music really detract from the experience. I bet they could get a little more creative with the overall experience and still adhere to the new guidelines.

Every time we have been here the food and service are simply exceptional! Highly recommend getting the empanada to get started and we generally just randomly pick some tacos. They all are so good!

Even for being a modern take, this was not authentic Sonoran food. My chilaquiles were soggy. Flavor was okay, but nothing spectacular.

The food is very good. Definitely a step above the average Mexican restaurant. However, at $5 per taco I was hoping that at least they would be a bit bigger. I also don't like paying for chips and salsa.

That said, it is also times of Covid and prices could reflect the difficulty for restaurants right now. In this case, I have no problem paying to support them.
