Love it

This place is always packed and parking is a nightmare/joke but it's soooo worth it. We want when it was a little chilly out and they had outdoor heaters and blankets with adds a nice cozy but eclectic feel. We had an appetizer which I wish i could remember the name of!!

This place is so great! The "Dia de los Muertos" themed decor adds an awesome feel to an already great restaurant. The chips and salsa are amazing, along with the queso. We've gone back twice this week to get the Bangin Dilla (Shrimp quesadilla). And the margaritas are fantastic. I would recommend this place to EVERYONE!

This is a casual loud and fantastic place! Tacos are small and mostly inexpensive so you can try several. Cheese dip is great, margaritas are great and the have a full bar. They have lots of unique and different types of tacos to try. I do not recommend going on peak times but we went on a Saturday for lunch... More

I am a fan of Taco's of all kinds. This place was great. The food was very good. We each got two tacos which was just enough with the chips and salas they give you to be full but not stuffed. The tacos are unique but not so crazy that our picky eater couldn't find something they liked. We sat... More

I just moved to Jax and it is my favorite local place so far! The cheese dip is great (although a little pricier than I prefer) and the tacos are the best I've ever had. Some of our favorites: brisket, carna asada, banging shrimp, cheeseburger, and the $10 taco. They are so tasty! It's definitely a place to try (and... More

Arrive after 6 and you will wait in line...but its worth it! Weve arrived at 9 pm and there was still a wait! eat in the bar... More

A lot of hype and talk among the locals. Hadn't been yet, so the occasion of a business luncheon was good enough. Many different varieties to choose from and since you can mix n match, you can experiment. Food is good and it is fresh. Parking could be a challenge but I have gotten lucky. Additionally, they offer free valet... More

Had avoided this primarily because of big big crowds. Went with another couple "early". Food was terrible- better taco's at Taco Bell(not saying much) food was "slapped" in taco shells. Mostly bad salsa and little fish or meat . Noise was beyond description! Not even full and still cannot hear yourself much less anyone else at table. Add screaming children... More

This place is a symbol of Jax beach. Consistent fresh flavorful. It was great. Decor is unique and very pretty. Anything you can imagine to put on tacos they have. Server very knowledgable about the menu and recommended the happy hour margaritas which thankfully tasted great. Anytime you have guest they must come here. Highly recommend and will come back...
