Funky atmosphere with great food.

Not a typical Mexican restaurant but the smoked chicken enchilada was excellent. Plantain appetizer was unique and delicious. Server was fun and knowledgeable. Nice happy hour and beer selection.

So many tasty options to choose from! I had the crab cake appetizer and the mahi fish taco. There were many other things I wanted to try, but portions were so large that it wasn't possible. If I'm back in that neighborhood, I'll definitely eat there again.

Everything on the menu is good. Have been here several times and never disappointed. All the tacos are awesome. Lots of the apps I've tried are very good. Do yourself a favor and give this place a shot.

Excellent food and reasonable prices. My husband had two tacos and I had the quesadilla filled with pulled chicken, cheddar and goat cheese-it was delicious. We ate upstairs, which had a very inviting bar. We went for lunch and were not disappointed. Our server has quite professional and personable. We will definitely return.

Excellent food and service at an extremely reasonable price! We went for lunch on Sunday with our three boys and they were quite busy. I dont know the name of our server, the hispanic guy who waited on us on the top floor, but he was absolutely amazing! Watching him run the floor and a room full of people was... More

A group of 9 friends ate here one rainy night after visiting the nearby Cummer Museum. We all enjoyed the food served. My husband and I ordered crab cakes, which were nearly all crab meat, but not lump crab meat. Still is was tasty, however, I would make another choice on a return visit. Happy hour featured special prices on... More

We had a split experience with the food. The tunafish tacos were quite good. The crab cake salad tasted stale or moldy. The server did apologize and offered another salad which was good, but could have done more to correct the mistake.

Wow! So consistently good that I had to review one of my hometown favorites. Everything I have had here, chicken empanadas, quesadilla, crab cakes, and even the margaritas are delicious. Friends and dining companions agree that their food is fantastic as well, every time! Servers always friendly and efficient. One of our go to places when company comes to town
