FUN, FUNKY, INEXPENSIVE BUT DELICIOUS!

We just finished our dinner at this place we visit en route of our travels at least twice a year. We stay nearby at a lovely B&B on Argyle. We walk 1 block for fun and funky Dorado for a great, inexpensive dinner. The "Cadillac" Don Julia reposada Margarita in a tall glass is a delicious deal... read more

don't expect a traditional meal.. this is a place with a twist! unique and a fun experience... our waitress was hilarious and nice. we received great service and my whole family enjoyed their meals. most options on the menu can be made vegetarian/vegan which was good to know since i don't eat meat!

The margaritas were outstanding, and the food was plentiful and delicious. Get there early to snag a table, and enjoy!

The restaurant is small and noisy. My margarita was terrific but my guests' mojitos were not as strong as they would have liked. Our waitress was friendly but it took almost an hour to get our entrees. My mahi tacos were ok - poor, I'd say. The fish wasn't particularly tasty. The chips and salsa were delicious. But I wouldn't... More

Didn't eat here but really enjoyed the tequila bar with a fantastic and knowledgeable bartender. Excellent selection and great atmosphere. Small hole-in-the-wall spot with amazing selection. Never thought to hang tequila from ceiling with bungee cords... Definitely recommend it for a fun night out.

This was our first visit to this small restaurant on Park Avenue, located in what could be called the restaurant district. It identifies itself as a Latin Fusion Bistro and Cantina, and has many of our favorite Mexican items on the menu. We both had the enchiladas mole, which was delicious. The selection of Mexican beers is quite complete; we... More

First time here and I enjoyed every minute! Great drinks & apps! Tiny restaurant but a lot of choices to choose from. (Every kind of tequila imaginable.) We ordered chips with salsa & guacamole for apps. The fresh salsa was my favorite! Also, ordered a "Pumpkin Pie Margarita" which was amazing!! Definitely would refer anyone here to enjoy a nice...
