Awesome food, some of the best salsa I have ever had in my life. Service was great, very friendly. Drinks were cold and the whole restaurant looks pretty nice with a good atmosphere. But really the food is definately worth coming here for. Highly recommend.

Walked right in and ordered at the counter. I had Nopales (cactus) and they were good, came with beans and guacamole. We ate on the patio which was nice except for the birds looking for food. But was still nice
