“Worth the wait!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

This place lives up to its reputation! A must visit when in the area. Parking was tight but they offer valet. Go early, to avoid any wait.

“Brisket Taco!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013 via mobile

Let me begin by saying this place gets packed fast. The chips and salsa were ok. I tried two tacos, the tacolu verde and the brisket. I immediately wished I had gotten two brisket tacos instead. The Tacolu verde was average at best but the brisket taco was amazing. I sampled my girlfriend's $10 taco (which is actually like $4-5) and it was good as well, but do yourself a favor and grab a brisket.

“Does not live up to the hype.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013 via mobile

The bar was super crowded, service half-hearted. Chips and salsa at the bar were good, margaritas only so-so. Wait was an hour, as quoted. Server seemed high, and was very slow. Had to ask for napkins & silverware, beet served warm in cans (canned beer?!) and food just OK. Next time, we'll go to Cantina Laredo.

“Cool Mexican Spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013 via mobile

This place has an amazing atmosphere. They text you when your table is ready. We were told a 45 min wait and it was exactly that. The bar was crowded but the staff was very attentive to the patrons waiting to b seated. It was very loud, but in a good way! The only Down side is they only have 1 restroom!! But having complimentary valet made up for that! Will definitely return when in town.

“Overpriced and not very good”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2013

Go for the tequila, but don't eat anything. A better choice would be just up the road at La Nopalera.
