    Best Mexican food I've ever had - everything was absolutely delicious. We had the queso to start with pulled pork topping. I had the pork shoulder for dinner and it was melt-in-your-mouth delicious. It was all meat! I am literally eating the leftovers for breakfast this morning as I type this. Everything was perfectly seasoned. My coworkers really enjoyed the margaritas. I'm not a fan of tequila, but they had an extensive tequila menu. It will definitely be top of the list when I'm in the area again.

    I left a note that I was having my anniversary and no one ever said anything. Place was very noisy. Food is ok. Didn't feel like authentic Mexican food. Drinks were the best part.

    Food was delicious, but a little pricy. Service was hit and miss. Left us for several periods of time. Took 30 minutes to get churros which were terrible probably because they sat for 25 minutes. Would go back for the food. Good for a group and sharing in encouraged. Queso and fresh tortillas were excellent!

    Half of our party loved the food and the other half thought it was OK. Nice wait staff and loved the variety of tequila options. Loved the freshly made tortillas, both crispy and soft! Found many dishes very salty and the guacamole was super lemon/limey! Will have to try it again and see what other menu options are like.

    There really should be more variety on the menu - I couldn’t sort how the menu was structured and what a typical order might look like. Further - you should consider redoing the physical menus. I’m color blind and the red lettering with no outline on the blue background in the same tone meant I literally could not see the words. Very hard to figure out the menu headings.

    Went for anniversary: - “Patio” is just the four tables in the sidewalk - Food was barely average and yes I am very familiar with the difference between TexMex and Interior Mexican food. - The prices were outrageous as compared to the quality and ambience.

    The food is amazing. The front desk is rude discourteous and unkind. With or without a reservation, you are treated like garbage that needs to be taken out. The problem with all of this is the food is simply off the hook so you put up with the Brutus to enjoy amazing food. I came here a year ago and wanted to return with a group of friends. Our mistake not having a reservation the next night I came back with a smaller group with a reservation and wanted to sit outside. There was table space but I was 10 minutes early so I was sitting next to a loud service station or I had no hope of hearing what the waitress had to say, fortunately I am well acquainted with the cuisine of Mexico have a lived in top there over 30 years ago. Good food does not mean you have the option of treating people like trash.

    Had great drinks and queso was delicious! Everything else was incredibly salty - tuna tostada and street corn. The carne asada was so salty and smokey tasting, I didn’t each much of it. Great service and ambiance but food was just ok overall.

    It’s got a great location, great ambiance but the food is just average. I have eaten better tacos at a food truck then here. Also, the drinks were too sweet. I would rate this a 3.5 / 5. Not sure if I would come back.
