Their food is good, but nothing so special and probably a bit pricey for what you get. They have great Happy Hour deals though! (The margaritas are really good!) The service is very friendly and helpful. The inside of the restaurant is pretty dark but they have a great outdoor patio in the summer time.

Been there many times, never disappointed. Weather permitting, outside seating the best for people watching on Passyunk Avenue. Food consistently good. Service could use some tuning up, but all in all, a good eating experience.

Service was horrible. Came here with my daughter and a few of my friends for lunch. They didnt even bother to swipe my 23 year old daughter's id to serve her drinks. They looked at it and gave it back and didnt serve her. The food quality is diminishing as well. Lost my business permanently.

Tasty complex flavors instead of over cheesed food. They included ingredients I had only seen on the cooking shows. I had goat tacos and the meat was very tender. Vegitarian quessadilla with huitlacoche was smoky and sauce as good. Plantains and greens were great sides. Noted vegan options too. Service very quick on a crowded night.

I was in Philadelphia recently for a business trip and my friend was hungry for tacos so we tried this place out. Sometimes you just want a regular ground beef taco and sometimes you just want queso dip with your chips. This is not the place to get either of these things. You can get goat or vegan beef but...

I've been to this restaurant twice and each time I experience something new on the menu. The margaritas are pretty good, as well as their Sunday specials. I would definitely recommend the Black Bean and Tuna tacos!

Hi - had dinner here. All of us had different burritos. While not a fan of burritos, I had one with chicken with jalapenos. Well, lots of rice, of course. The jalapenos seem marinated and not to my taste. We did not know there were cool specials until after the meal. Our server who was really nice did not say... More
