Oh so good!

Most people don't think of Mexican food when they think of New Orleans, but this place is awesome! The food is very reasonably priced, and the flavor is so good. I got the big burrito with all different types of meat on it, and it was delicious. My husband got the nachos, and he was very happy... read more

We ate here for lunch with a small group of coworkers. It is very popular and we had a short wait for a seat. Due to the crowd, service was a bit slow, drinks very slow to get refilled. Overall the food was pretty good, not exceptional. Good atmosphere in a surprising location. Price was a bit high, but expected... More

The best! Food is great, atmosphere is fun and service is quick and friendly. I love the menu but always end up ordering the same thing. Can't get away from the Jerk Nachos! Yummy! Food is fresh and drink are great. Almost never have to wait long for a table and even if I do it's worth it! Prices are... More

We had heard of the wonderful food there, so we had to try it for ourselves. We were not disappointed. The food was amazing, portions were good and the service was top notch. We love it so much that before we left New Orleans we HAD to eat there again. Worth going, you just have to try it

Although it's billed as Mexican creole fusion, it's more on the Mexican side. That's ok because the food is amazing and the portions are huge for what you pay. If you're in the Garden District, you have to stop in.

Glad I checked it out. It was really good. We had fish tacos and the flying burrito. Both were delicious.

There are a variety of choices of tacos, burritos, quesadillas, enchiladas, and fajitas. We ordered four different items from the menu. We each enjoyed our dinner and would recommend this moderately priced restaurant. The service was efficient and friendly.

This area of New Orleans is riddled with hipsters and douche bags. I would have never gone to this area if wasn't for the call of shoes. Any way, I asked the clerk at the store were a good place to eat and she suggested this place. OMG it was good. This is not you're typical tex mex. It knows... More

Stopped by in our way into a New Years vacation in Nola based off of my brothers recommendation. Had the flying burrito and the the steak burrito special. Bothe were great. Frozen margarita was a good value at 6.50 and service was attentive but not over bearing. Would recommend a visit for a value meal Mexican meal in Nola.
