Dropped in here after a day at the museums and wasn’t terribly impressed. With more of a slightly dirty bar vibe, than a restaurant vibe, the food was bland and uninspired. The fish tacos and chicken tacos both had a ton of meat... it’s just...More

I stopped in for lunch on a business trip. Since my work was done, I had a margarita. It was good, and the food was very good. The place doesn't look like much, but the food was very good. It was not expensive.

Randomly walked in here while strolling the area. I was impressed. It was delicious. I loved the chips and salsa. They make a very spicy margarita. It was fast, delicious and affordable.

Great place with oh-so-many options. Had a hard time choosing my meal. Family friendly, but also a good place to grab a brew after work. Staff was helpful and hustled for everything.

We went on a Thursday evening - place closes at 9. It was busy and bustling! The chips for the salsa rang in as everyone's favorite that they had ever had. The top shelf margaritas were the perfect addition to our good company and conversations....More

Lovely spot in downtown Tampa for a quick and tasty lunch. I had the tacos which are served with rice and beans. It's a generous serving, so you won't go away hungry. I had the fish and chicken (pollo loco) tacos. Both were delicious with...More
