    Great ambience and service, food is sadly unimpressive. Salsa tasted like out of the can, so did the queso dip. Wasn’t risking a $19 dish after sad appetisers. Nice cocktails and great location though.

    Delicious margaritas, chips, salsa, entrees (shrimp tacos with the smoky sauce and a side of plantains --mwah, so good.. Love the vibe/decor. The only ding is the $9 guacamole--yummy--was one small scoop. Too little for the price IMO. We will return!

    Great service and delicious food. The Spicy cocktail was just right, as were all the specialty cocktails. The queso and guacamole - also fantastic. We were entertaining folks from Texas with high standards on this type of fare - and they were all extremely pleased!

    The reason I am writing this review is because our waiter was outstanding! Best service I've had postCovid. Our drinks took a little extra time to come up but neither husband nor I noticed. The waiter apologized and took our drinks off the bill. Then, he had the manager come over to apologize. We are so used to everybody being understaffed and everything taking so long, we were just shocked at how great the service was. The waiter was also personable and helpful/gave great suggestions - perfect really. The drinks and food were also AMAZING. We had the absolute best meal. It surprised me on every level. I WILL BE BACK! And, sorry, but we're bringing the kids next time cause they have GOT to have those churros. They were AMAZING!

    I had not eaten here since before the pandemic, but I always enjoyed it. This meal, however, was over the top good. We started with the watermelon margaritas that were perfect for summertime. We both had the chili rellenos which were large and stuffed with delicious tinga chicken. The side dish of plantains was amazing. I was recently in Costa Rica and the plantains here were just as good as those I had in Central America. We both had desert and my flan was excellent but my friend's tres leches cake was to die for. Our waiter, Luke, was attentive, friendly, and efficient. The manager spoke with us on a couple of occasions to ensure that everything was up to par. In short, the food, service, and ambiance were amazing. I love the open-air windows on Hillsborough Street. I will definitely not wait 2 years to return!
