Special night every night!! On each evening there is a special discount on drinks (like saturday night, shooters at 2.95CAD!! or thursday pitcher of beer at 11.95CAD!!).

Very welcoming and caring owners and staff. Tons of fun. Owner/Chef Luis makes the best latin food I've tasted! Everything is fresh and housemade. The best beans ever!!!! The most fantastic mole, verde, sopa asteca, tomales....I could go on and on and on.
