The owner was extremely rude to us when we came in. Then when we confronted her about it, she was extremely unapologetic. It was a terrible experience especially since the owner was the rudest person there. There was also no point in reserving a table since when you show up on time for your reservation, there are never any tables available.

We haven’t seen each other in years so we decided to go out to eat. The time 90 min was a short time. If they didn’t have not booking they should have let us stay longer. Drinks were good. Had Fried shrimp taco it was average. Chorizo dip was good. Shrimp glass was good. Chorizo tacos were good.

Food wasn’t as great as last Taco Tuesday. Service was great. There was an obnoxious group that were loud and disruptive but all was good once they left.

We went here for Sunday happy hour; great prices but not very accommodating to large groups when it came to billing. I would come here again but with a small group (less than 6).

The service was amazing! So many protocols in place for Covid and the staff was so attentive.

They run a happy hour everyday from 4-7pm. We didn’t even know this. It was a nice surprise. Drink and food specials. So much to choose from.

We had the skillet nachos that were delicious. An order of the peril tacos, chorizo tacos and elote (corn on the cob w/a delicious crema) The tacos came in a set of 3 each and generously filled.

Also, a mango and classic margarita .

The food was hot and wonderfully prepared. Can’t wait to go back. We loved it!!! My daughter had leftovers for the next day.

Take advantage of making a reservation on their website or through open table. We got right in with our reservation but there were a lot of people waiting during our whole meal trying to get in but because of social distancing and room capacity the wait seemed pretty long.
