Have been many time but this time was very rushed. Courtney our server was not friendly at all and had an attitude right from the start. I have been to many restaurant during covid snd the 90 minute rule but this was the worst. Service was slow once we got our food. And then when we wanted dessert, we were told no our time is up. Courtney needs to be spoken to about her attitude snd how she red presents your restaurant. All others that I’ve met there were wonderful

Great food and service. Went for happy hour. Shocked with the portions you get for half off apps. So worth it. Some of the best margs we have had. Can’t wait to go back!

Service was very good. The heaters didn’t do much for outdoor dining, but they called in advance and warned us about that (which I really appreciated). This is the second time I’ve been there. The meat was very dry on my tacos both times. They do fish tacos very well, though.

Outstanding menu! Outdoor seating with heat lamps made for a perfect evening with friends. Highly recommend the guacamole and chips, street corn, barbacoa tacos, and fish of the day tacos. Coconut martini was refreshing too.

Waited over 25 minutes for drinks, 2 appetizers were ordered at different times and came to table prior to arrival of drinks. This deterred us from ordering additional beverages.

It was fine. Overpriced for overcooked underflavored beef tacos when there are plenty of other places in Boston for the same price that are way better. The fish taco was very good though. The spicy margarita actually has some kick to it which was nice, but overall the meal was mediocre at best.

The food was just ok, for a taqueria we were expecting it to be amazing. Unfortunately the food was mediocre, the drinks were really good I must say. Even with one bartender on a Saturday night and a little bit of a wait the drinks were the highlight.

The wait staff were all so kind- we were celebrating two of our friends birthdays and I put that in the notes of the reservation and they saw that and without me even asking they brought over shots WITH sparklers!!! It was so fun and so appreciated, and everyone loved their food:) oh also their bathrooms are really cool so if ur a person that likes places with cool bathrooms, this is the place for you

Disregard any negative reviews about this food. The tacos here are some of the best you will find in the area, they’re off the charts. Food comes first in a restaurant everything else is secondary. Pretty cool spot tequila selection is decent and cocktail my girlfriend got was well crafted. Being someone who loves Mexican authentic or not and someone who works in a fine dining steakhouse I give this place a thumbs up. Also ppl complaining about the 90 min restriction get over it, shut up for a second and eat your dinner. Thank you.

The mole tamale was cold and not tasty. Some of the soft tacos were hard and stale on around the ends. The fish taco was so good with two fish nuggets that we ordered another. We only had fried batter and no fish in the second order. Also the food wasn't seasoned enough, it was bland. The duck taco was cold and tasteless. The whitefish tequilas were the best out of everything. The drinks were also good. The waitress never asked us how was our food. The table was too small and we were small to medium sized people. There wasn't enough space on the table for our food. It was packed in the restaurant and although they had partitions face level to separate the tables, the seats were so close on the benches that another person's coat was on my bench side and touching me. Because we are in a Covid pandemic, I didn't feel safe at this establishment. And parking was extremely difficult to find. After waiing in a long line to park behind the building, we only discovered that it was ONLY parking for Whole foods. We will never eat here again. We love the eatery in Dorchester where it is smaller, but the food is more authentic and seasoned. The staff is super hospitable and the drinks rock!!!

Drinks were amazing, service ok. We’re asked to leave after 90 mins and there were available reservations online for as soon as we were done. So we could of booked a reservation and come right back in. We’re declined to sit at the bar. Food was dry.

Would go back for drinks and an appetizer but not main meal.

The food was horrible. Some drinks just tasted like sour mix. Very embarrassing to bring friends here. Will never go again- restaurant is so hyped up for nothing. Recommend the Dorchester location if anything.

The food was a bit mediocre than I remember it being however full disclosure this was my first time at this location. I think it was because their was almost too much meat (duck & chicken tinga tacos) that took away from the other flavors. I would return for guac portion and drinks.
