The. ancho chicken tacos were really delicious. I had some mahi tacos also, and they were so so. The mahi was a little dry. The corn tortilla was really good. Service was spectacular! Very nice staff. I would definitely come back to try more. I just had a short time for a late lunch when I got into town.

Trendy little spot in the Soho area, so it was jammed by 7. Skipped a supposed our wait by eating in the bar. Americano street tacos were nice, as was tuna bowl. The 60-ounce margarita seemed popular. Good but you will have had better tacos somewhere. Still, a chill hangout spot before going elsewhere.

I love this place, it is one of my favorite places to eat, If you do not like loud music I would go earlier in the night. Some nights they have loud music and it is hard to hear each other when that is going on. The food was great tasting and fresh tasting every time I've been there.

We love the nachos, tacos and beer. We don't usually wait for a table but find a spot at the bar. The service is great and the food is delicious. We always go during happy hour to get the best value.
