Very nice and attentive servers and easy ordering process. Instead of passing out menus you look it up using a QR code at your table and the servers bring everything out.

Only negative (if you could call it that) is that it is noisy but they can’t really control people blasting music from their cars, lol. It’s definitely a “South Street ambiance.”

Our server, Chance was amazing! However the manager was extremely rude and condescending.

I would advise that you take your money next door to Entree BYOB- their food is AMAZING and the service was even better!

When we arrived I notified staff that we had an Open Table reservation and were shown to an outdoor table, as requested. Server was pleasant and responsive. My wife liked her fish taco. I found my burrito to be “filling.” When check came there was a 20% gratuity added, which was ok since I normally tip 20%. Unusual to automatically add a gratuity for only two people, however. Final credit card bill included the 20% plus an “option” for an additional tip. When I got home I got an email from Open Table informing me that I no showed for my reservation and should have cancelled. I called the restaurant and told them to inform Open Table that I had kept my reservation, which they did. Overall, a mediocre meal with a bit of unneeded aggravation.

We definitely recommend the guacamole, short ribs and margaritas. It would be fun to go back when COVID restrictions are over. We had a great server and always feel bad when they’re stuck with that mask all day.

It was a very cold evening and while we didn't ask, we wish they would have shut the door where they were handing out to-go orders. But perhaps they were required to keep the door open. We also hoped they would light the propane heaters but again perhaps they were not allowed to have propane heaters indoors. Even w/ the open door, the propane heater would have helped a little. But that's the only thing that prevented 5-stars across the board. also... they need to add queso dip to the menu!

Hi Chris - Thank you so much for the kind words! I'm glad you had a nice night. We are required to keep the takeout window open for air added circulation throughout the restaurant, and unfortunately the propane heaters are for outdoor use only. I hear you on the Queso Dip - that sounds like a delicious addition we'll have to look into. : ) - Jessica

Not a great outdoor set up for people that come after the first few nice tables with heaters get filled. Also website for restaurant still has a happy hour menu which is why we booked the reservation and the waiter informed us after we ordered there was no happy hour and that I should’ve known better because “no one does happy hours anymore”.

Fantastic food and service.
Was, therefore, the first time and was very impressed.
We ordered double orders of most things since they were too good!
Definitely will go again.
Very comfortable for a quick bite as well as for sitting and chilling.

Strict rules regarding COVID policies it’s very safe distance between tables and other guests. They have a pretty strict policy regarding time limit for the table even with a reservation, so it felt a little rushed. Staff was very friendly. Food and drinks were great but tacos were a little on the small side for the price.

Hostess was rude. We arrived a few minutes early and were given a table that was not to our liking. We asked to be seated elsewhere. Was told that there were no other tables available at that moment so we said we’ll wait for another table. All of the sudden, there was a table available (about six, to be exact, as we turned the corner).

Server seemed a bit more engaging to other guests versus our table.

Food was great. Too bad the service wasn’t.
