5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

One of our favorite places to go for a quick bite. Food is always good! Beer always cold and the service and staff wonderful.

“Great fresh mexican food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

This was one of our best meals in Fort Lauderdale. Fresh food and it all tasted great. I can't believe they don't charge more for all the fresh food. We both had burritos and stuffed ourselves. The fresh salsa was also very good. We saw a lot of locals coming through and everyone looked they were leaving stuffed! Definitely stop in here for lunch.

“Just average, what else can i say?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2012 via mobile

The fish taco was the highlight of my meal, but even that was fairly mediocre.The chicken tasted highly processed. The salsa bar is a nice. The price is right, otherwise, i probably would have given only 2 stars. I grew up in Texas and went to college in Austin, and have pretty high standards when it comes to tacos, especially reasonably priced tacos. My boyfriend, who does not have as high of standards as I, agreed that, overall, the food was just boring. Probably won't be coming back.

“Best fresh mexican food. Period.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

This place is the best. Everytime we are in Fort Lauderdale, we make a point of stopping there because everything is great! The steak tacos, the rice, the stuffed peppers, the green salsa and oh the fish tacos. My husdand always gets the Cali wrap, he says its amazing. Everything is fresh and quick and you dont feel gross after eating there. The best. I wish they were everywhere.

“Fresh salsa and an awesome fish taco.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012 via mobile

After seeing others' reviews we decided to have dinner there. Liked the idea of exceptionally fresh and a healthier take on Mexican. It didn't disappoint!

This is a quick service restaurant: you order at counter and grab a table (inside or out). The salsa is fresh, so is the guac. There are a handful of beer options. They make their own chips and don't use lard in their beans. Great flavors. Loved my fish taco! Might have one for lunch tomorrow before heading out of town.

Great service with great causal atmosphere.
