    It was OK but I thought the menu was a bit limited. Quite basic. Food was tasty but nothing stood out for me. Seemed a lot more about the cocktails than the food.

    First time at this spot and being that I’m originally from SoCal I am a Mexican food snob. This place did not disappoint and both my friend and I enjoyed and would love to come back again and purchase that extra large maragarita 😉

    Great atmosphere on a Sunday afternoon and the Guacamole, Margaritas, Elote (Mexican street corn) and the Queso Taco special were absolutely delicious. Jesús was our server, he was friendly and attentive. Highly recommend this West Village spot.

    Service was not good- just not staffed properly. Took a while to get servers attention for food orders/bill. Took 15 mins just to get a server over when we first sat down. Food was good, but the taco tower is only sold mon-wed, which was the whole point in going and they didn’t have it

    Making a reservation on OpenTable was the best thing I could’ve done to eat here, there was a line of about 30 people out front and we got there 10 min before our slot and was sat within that time. The Mezcalitas were banging , guacamole fresh and the blackened shrimp in the sizzling fajitas were slapping. Plus best Elote (Mexican Street Corn) I ever had in my life. I really want to go back. The only thing I will say is that it was pretty busy so they forgot our appetizer we ordered with our drinks but it was steady with our main meal after that. Go you won’t regret it!

    My first large drink was delicious ; I don’t know what happened to the small version- tasted like pure juice. & the red salsa that comes with the chips use to be delicious!!! & this time it tasted the water. The location that closed was my favorite 🙃 but the server was amazing bc it was slow at 530pm on a Saturday so I guess that made up for it.
