the food was delicious when we finally got it as they were a little slow in serving possibly busier than usual for a Friday night. Reasonably priced

Authentic southwestern food made with culinary flare...simple yet delicious. All the Tocos are great but the Pork Belly Tocos are o so amazing. Check out the weekly specials for streching your hard earned money.

Went there for dinner on a Saturday night. It wasn't too busy, I'm assuming because it is the off season. My boyfriend got a chicken burrito, which was HUGE, and I got the pork tacos. Our food was delicious and fresh and it came out super quick. Our server was also great and was very friendly and helpful. The music... More

The bar offers drink specials and my favorite is the cantaloupe mojito! I am obsessed with Nacho's that have the pickled onions. MMMMMMMMM!!! Going to pick up some... More

Nice little Mexican restaurant. More of a specialty menu of tacos and burritos. I had the 12 inch Cali burrito with Ancho Braised beef brisket, pork barbacoa, Ancho braised beef brisket. Almost to much to handle. My sister had some kind of Quesadilla with kale and goat cheese, she loved it.

I got the appetizer nachos as my meal. I love nachos. I was offered tofu as a protein add on but they already had black beans so I declined. Our waiter was awesome! Helpful and accommodating. As a vegetarian I get excited when I find places that are willing to substitute. But this place has so many veggie options and... More

Not typical Mexican, more Baha style. We had the fish taco, mushroom quesadilla, the "shredder" burrito, and the dip sampler. All really good
