I was very impressed with the selection of the tacos especially being seafood but the quality and the size of a taco was quite filling and delicious. Will be back again!

We chose this restaurant for the outdoor seating and people watching - on that it hit the mark. Basic taco menu - you chose the ingredients and sides from one window and then go to the bar for your beverages. Nice flavors, not inexpensive.

This place is crowded and quite loud and definitely caters to the younger crowd. My wife and I are 59 but we still enjoyed stopping here for a couple drinks. Each of the bartenders were friendly and efficient.

We stopped in for a Saturday lunch hoping to watch the Michigan State Football Game. So many TVs!! Cold beer! The food was really good. I had Mako Shark Tacos that were amazing. Clean. Casual atmosphere. Friendly service.

Nice local place to grab some drinks and enjoy the Austin Vibe. Staff was friendly. If food is desired, it has to be ordered from the adjust restaurant TURF N SURF PO BOY. Blacked shrimp, fries and coleslaw were very good.
