It's fine- it's more of a boozy place with friends with passable food, tacos, margs, etc. Sidewalk seating is nice. The queso fundido is incredibly greasy and the portions for Guac and chip baskets were disappointing. Drinks were solid though. This place has a long way to go to catch up to Big Star and what they offer.

Super great brunch during the pandemic - likely my last week of being out as it's worsening.

They did a great job on the food and the safety of the space and I will most certainly return here when we are dining out again.

Average food. Unfortunately the funky/industrial decor inside, when there are just 4-5 tables only (spaced apart, per covid), does not look exciting. But commendable as they abide by Covid protocol -- masks, waiting, distances

Don’t go there for the food as it is not authentic Mexican food. The tacos are ok and the ceviche is horrible. This was my second time there and went back for the Margaritas which I thought were excellent the first time around. The drinks are not consistent in flavor.

Drinks and tacos were great! Roasted corn appetizer was so yummy!!! Tasty tacos are tiny for the price; just slightly more filling and more sauce (or selection of salsas) would have made them perfect! Service is excellent.

I’m not really into margaritas but their Fuego margarita was killer yummy. We had the pork belly and chicken tacos, and guacamole with pine nuts - all simply delicious. We will be coming back soon.

We came here for Valentines day excited to try out this place. When we got there the hostess was nice and led us to our table. On our way to our table I noticed people wearing coats and hats. The hostess explained to us a window broke upstairs and it was drafty. They tried to have it fixed a week ago but it didn't happen so it will be fixed this week.

We sat in our seat and were immediately assaulted by a burst of cold air. Keep in mind it was degrees outside. If the restaurant was aware of this problem they should have never allowed seating in this area. They could have offered a coffee or a shot to make up for this cold. I had to wear my hat and scarf. I was still freezing. Eventually I wore my parka to eat.

We ordered our food. We had a couple of appetizers. chips and salsa, 2 of the 3 salsas had decent flavor but no kick. We also ordered the queso fundido which was very tasty. The mushrooms on it were great.

For dinner we ordered a variety of tacos. Fish, which was good. a little over fried but still flavorful. Shrimp, was meh. the shrimp didn't taste fresh but it was still Ok. Beef Barbacoa was completely devoid of flavor or seasoning. when I have barbacoa I expect it to be strong in flavor. It was the opposite.

Desert we had the flan the caramel was burnt and it had a bad aftertaste. The vanilla parfait tasted like yogurt. both were disappointing

Overall - There are many better place in this area. I won't be back. the staff was excellent I have to say but the food was not. Salt and pepper aren't bad things to use when cooking.

My husband and I have been coming here for over 3+ years now. We’ve since moved out of the area but will drive 30 min to come for the best lamb tacos ever! Always amazing food, margaritas and environment. Every restaurant they have is awesome.

Food and service are always great! Love the innovative tacos that they have. Favorite tacos are their mushroom, shrimp, chicken. It's not on the menu but they have a vegan taco filled with veggies and a delicious sauce that I'd recommend to anyone, vegan or not!

This was my first time coming to this place after seeing an ad for it on Instagram. This restaurant had such a chic feel when you walked in. The staff was SUPER nice! Upon arrival we were greeted and I let them know we had made a reservation. She walked us to our table and told us a server would be right with us. The server was very kind and attentive to our needs. She took in our orders and our food was ready within no time. To drink I had classic margarita and it was delicious. To eat I had a beef skirt taco and two chicken al pastor tacos. Personally, I would recommend the skirt taco over the chicken al pastor, as I found the al pastor chicken tacos to be somewhat too sweet for me. I didn’t like the combination of the pineapple with the other ingredients in the food. I also am aware that traditionally Al Pastor is cooked with pineapple as it spins on a metal rod while it gets cooked. To each their own but again that is just my opinion. Oh! And for dessert I had flan and that was DELICIOUS! It was so creamy it would melt right in your mouth! Overall me and my friends had a great time! I highly recommend this place!

The food might have been good. The music pulsing out of the overhead speakers was so loud one could barely place an order. Not going back until we have mastered sign language.

The restaurant was very average. There was nothing wrong with the food or the atmosphere or service but there was nothing great about it either.
The drink was the coolest part.
I would eat there again if someone else wanted to go but probably wouldn’t suggest it myself.
