I love this place. I eat here, often. Quality, Value and great service. I often bring guests. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. The food is amazing. Recently, they were able to expand. The new space, made room for an open kitchen format, which I have always been a fan of. I usually eat here, a couple times a month.... More

Food is generally good and fresh and they have very good Margaritas! It is not a cozy space by any means and when they have live music on the weekend it can be hard to talk to others at the table. The prices are good and you can often get discounts on some of the Food Apps.

Decent Mexican food, if you are coming for the ambience, forget about the ambience, it is a simple restaurant serving good Mexican food as there is nothing decent in the area and its vicinity. Staff are friendly but service is just terrible! Maybe it is because they know that they are the only game in town and make no effort... More

We have enjoyed the tacos, soap, and ceviche on many occasions. The restaurant is super casual, and wait staff is very friendly. Can be very busy, but food comes out quickly and portion sizes are very good. We always ask for 2 tortillas with our tacos, so they will not fall apart as easily. Recommend the seafood tacos and ceviche.... More

I've been here quite a few times, some of the best Mexican food I've had. I would recommend just about anything on their menu. These folks don't disappoint, they are serving flavour!!!!

We have eaten in the restaurant and had take out as well. In both cases the food is fresh and tasty. A wide variety of authentic dishes to choose from and friendly staff. Check it out!

My husband and I love Mexican food. We tried this place one night and will definitely be coming back. The margaritas, tacos, and service were all fantastic! Also loved the live music on the Friday night we were there.
