No burritos here! I was born in taco country and I'm confident when saying that this is the best taco shop in Edmonton (and in many other places across Alberta). It's a combination of the flavour, the sustainable practices followed for their produce/meat purchases, and the service. Although, I have to say, the service has changed in the last year.... More

Atmosphere: cool decor, hip vibe; extremely busy: expect a line up (no reservations as I am sure they would end up losing money on no shows due to the popularity of the place) Service: good; the wait staff are very very busy but explain the menu items if needed and are easy to catch if needed ;) Food: pulled pork...

Just do it, you won't regret it. We stopped in here for dinner on a weeknight, luckily just before the crowds hit so we didn't have to wait too long for a table. But the lineup was out the door by the time we left. It's popular for a reason! It's a fun place for a casual meal, and the... More

This was our second visit over the last few years. We were no more impressed this time. The food is average homemade Mexican fare, nothing more. We had two different taco dishes, the Al Pastor and Cochinita Pibil. They were fine but nothing special compared to our fond memories of eating in Mexico. Likewise, for the Taco Soup, it was...

Fantastic food! Definitely worth lining up, waiting for a table, and sitting in an uncomfortable chair. Yes, the food is that good and the atmosphere is fun!

This was my first time to the restaurant. A friend who lives downtown wanted to check it out so I thought I would try it out. The waitress was rude right from the beginning. It started when I sat myself rather then checking in... there was no sign saying I needed to do that so I didn't realize I had... More

From the first smell when we walked in the door, we were glad we came to this restaurant. My husband spent many years working in the mountains of Mexico and he says that this place is the closest he has ever come to authentic Mexican cuisine. We are hooked.
