This little restaurant is always crowded because the food and sangrias are so delicious. If you need quiet dining, you shouldn't eat here. Always check the bar for an open seat at the bar rather than wait the usual hour.

The food was good but almost everything was highly spiced. There was no way to substitute anything to make it less spicy or more vegetarian friendly. I liked a few of the menu items, I would NOT miss the plantains, they were excellent! The rest...More

Stopped by for dinner. Food was great! Loved the mushroom empanada app. We had the restaurant week menu. Was great.

This place was packed , but we found the food kind of underwhelming. Too sweet, not enough kick. I guess people go for the drinks and the atmosphere----

My daughter and I were visiting and stopped by for dinner. We both had excellent entrees. I particularly enjoyed the fish taco. Portions were small, so we could have ordered more. A fun and funky place for dinner. Glad we called ahead to get a...More

One of a trio from a particularly interesting restauranteur who has a sensitive palette for the acidic; more Mexican-inspired then a Mexican restaurant pet se, you will be pleasantly surprised by the twists and turns on this menu and on your plates. An unexpected surprise...More

You can usually tell when a restaurant is good by the wait to get in! Our party arrived at 6 p.m. and was told there would be a 45-1 hour wait! As we had planned to dine there and they don't take reservations (except for...More
