“A relief from the usual Mexican resturant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013 via mobile

We had a wonderful experience here. The food was great and our waiter was even better. At first I found the blonde hostess rude and had we not been hungry would have turn around and gone back out the door. I'm so glad we waited! Our waiter was awesome and made up for it completely! With small kids this really makes or breaks a place for us. The food was great and we donated our sides for the hungry, who doesn't love that!? This will be our go to place when were in town!

“Great Meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013

My wife and I had lunch here during a recent visit to Asheville. Service was friendly and fast. Our server recommended a few items which were all excellent. My wife had the fish tacos and absolutely loved them. Ingredients were fresh and all sides were delicious. The margaritas were quite good as well.

“The BEST Fish Tacos anywhere!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

We keep coming back to Asheville because we enjoy this city so much, but I think the real reason is to return to this great restaurant and grab our favorite menu item. We've ordered fish tacos many times and at different restaurants. Nothing can compare. Great side items and all around choices. Can't wait to return!

“Love their guac and salsa”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013 via mobile

We go for just the guac, queso and salsa and are never disappointed. Yum. My husband has had the fajitas before and they are also good. Go at an "off time" and it won't be busy to wait.

We LOVE U- hope to see you next time. May want to try the new Ultimate Queso, comes with a variety of add-ons, so each person at the table can make their own creation.
