Visiting from Texas and met friends here. The menu items are so unique. We started with the corn appetizer and the asian-type cauliflower - both were delicious. I chose the Crown Jewel taco and a friend had Yoda. Another friend had a salad that was...delicious and so large -- she took it home and ate the rest for dinner! I was just amazed how inventive and flavorful everything was. And food was very reasonably priced. My only slight annoyance is their drinks are too pricey but that will not deter me from returning here next time I visit. Wait staff was top notch!More

We only ordered tacos, so I cannot vouch for any of the other menu items. We had Bama, Alderman and Yoda. All were very unique and flavorful. Two fed a grown man for lunch for around $9-11.

This restaurant has the most interesting and unique tacos. We started with the tortilla chips and queso which was fine. Good selection of beers and mixed drinks. The frozen drinks are very good and are available in pitchers. The tacos can't be beat though. It...is hard to choose among the inventive fillings. The patio seating is very nice. Service was very good.More

The hotel desk recommended we come here for dinner and we are so glad she did!! The best food I’ve had in awhile!! Yummiest unique tacos...we had “the bomb” taco, it was the bomb! And the “the good wolf” was not good but great! However,...Our appetizer of the Burria street tacos was probably my favorite thing we had. Fun outdoor patio atmosphere as well!More

The manager of our hotel in Louisville recommended this restaurant. I am so glad we listened to him. The tortilla chips were very tasty. The queso dip was thick, creamy, and so so good. The tacos were amazing. They have a hard shell that gets...placed into a soft shell. You have the option of picking a “love cushion” for in between so I chose to have the queso in between the shells. I had the California Dreamer and my husband had the Swipe Right. The California Dreamer had Mahi Mahi- which is one of my favorite fish...was good but I wish I would have ordered the Swipe Right because it was to die for. All the employees seemed to really enjoy their jobs. I’m completely envious we do not have something like this around where we’re from. Hope to be back soon!More

1st visit, 5:30 on a Friday. Place was getting busy and was packed when we left. Happy hour with reduced margaritas and tacos ends at 6. Food was very good chips & queso had nice flavor. Tacos were good and stuffed with unique ingredients. Fried...cauliflower was great. Has a party atmosphere, very loud with a colorful decor. Get a pitcher of margaritas, Dobel Tequila, and have fun timeMore

Excellent food- great service- great atmosphere. Can’t say enough about this restaurant. Tried it today with a group of friends and absolutely loved everything- the cauliflower appetizer, hot brown sliders, and mac daddy taco were r favorites. We didn’t have reservations- we went early to...get in (4:30).More

This place was PACKED but worth the wait. Our server Candice did an awesome job keeping our glasses full and answering all our questions. Had the Swipe Right taco - chicken, bacon, cheddar, salsa DELICIOUS. HUGH taco. Husband had the Bang Bang - cauliflower, corn...fritters, queso, crispy carrots. He really enjoyed the flavors and texture. Margaritas good but a little pricey at $10 each. Large selection of tequilas and bourbons.More
