Wicked good tacos.

The hot salsa gave me the hiccups. Grilled tofu is a good option for vegetarians. Surprisingly good draft beer selection.

I was recently here with a large group for dinner. We had meat eaters, vegetarians, and vegans in our group and everyone was able to find something delicious to eat. It was so good we went back for lunch a few days later!

We came here for dinner at the referral of a local and she was right...it is a wonderful restaurant. I HIGHLY recommend the goat cheese and mushroom Quesadilla...one of the best things I have ever eaten. My father in law had steak and thought it was great and my very larg portions husband had the pork belly taco, which he... More

Great tacos and Cuban style sandwiches in a small, out-of-the-way strip shopping center. You gotta look got it. Food, service, and prices are very good. Very plain setting, nothing fancy about the place, but well worth a visit. I think you will like it.

Read up on the place before hand and reviews were promising. As a vegan its always more difficult to find dining options and menus with suitable meals. They accommodated my requirements and I had some very good guacamole, followed by two delicious tacos (tofu and bean, without the dairy). Ordered it was hot and it was certainly spicy. Very friendly... More

Bad bean has the best biggest burrito that you will ever have this side of the Mississippi! There pork beef or chicken are all amazing. Not to mention their guacamole and homemade salsa is some of the best around. If your looking for a place with top notch margarita there pineapple or watermelon are absolutely amazing! Best place to unwind... More

I have never dined here before so my husband and I decided to give it a try. Wow! We were both pleasantly surprised. Very clean place and our server was very friendly. And the food was awesome. Couldn't finish it so I have lunch tomorrow, I had the ancho braised beef brisket quesadillas and the flavor was impeccable. Can't wait... More

Tucked away in a strip mall this place prepares sensational food. The whole family loves it. Dining in or taking out you cannot go wrong. Great flavor. Love all the tacos, especially the pork belly. A must stop if your in need of a break from seafood. The staff is very friendly.

No, don't go here for what you might consider "authentic Mexican food". Do go here for a gastronomical delight based on upscale Spanish influences. The pork belly offerings were out of sight, and the stuffed avocados were to write home about. And the beer and wine lists were more than adequate for a small restaurant in the corner of a... More

The food was typical Ameri-Mexican. It was bland and too expensive. Not a destination that will get my attention.
