Super love going here as a local for the service! My go tos on the menu are the Caesar salad, carbonara pasta and the diablo pizza! Run by a great staff who are quick to serve and with a smile!

Loved the tacos. The seafood dish my wife had was very fresh. The metzcal margarita was great. Beware the “hot” sauce; delicious but volcanic.

Our server. Armando, was excellent. Very attentive, but not overly so, and knowledgeable about the dishes. We both had enchiladas (veggie and chicken) and the chips came with amazing salsas. As others have said, good for people watching!
