My friends and I stopped by here before going to watch the NBA Finals game for a quick bit to eat. We also got some drinks. The drinks could have been stronger, might have just been the night, but they were a little watered down...More

Interesting and delicious drink menu. Food is very good - fresh salsa and yummy quesadillas. It was a muggy day and the a/c was blasting and felt AMAZING.

Stopped in for an early week cocktail. Ended up trying a couple menu items. The mango sauce for the fried cheese was super different and delicious. I even saved some of it for my shrimp tacos. Loved it. The bartender was attentive.

My friends and I meet here often when the weather is agreeable. The outdoor seating allows for adding incoming friends. Staff knows the menu, special orders are not an issue, and the nachos are awesome!

Bar/restaurant with outdoor seating, stopped in for dinner, menu was mostly tacos. I had excellent guacamole (house made) and Capistrano chicken tacos. Food was good and so was the price. Olivia provided excellent and fast service.

We went early on a Saturday. It is a cute little downtown bar. The food was pretty good and came out fast. I could see how it could be crowded fast but they have tons of outdoor seating on cool evenings.
