We stopped by for an early dinner and sat outside on a beautiful evening. Service was prompt and very good. Food was also very good, and I saw many menu items I'd return to try.

Ate there tonight. Staff was friendly enough and food tasted fine but about 30-45 minutes after we left I developed stabbing abdominal pain, and soon after that vomiting and diarrhea. Bummer. What a crappy way to spend our anniversary weekend in Detroit :(

Good for lunch. Maybe happy hour. Nothing exceptional. But the elote is worth mentioning: yummy and well executed. Tacos were ok. Service was good and place is cute and warm/welcoming. The music though was too loud and disconnected from patrons and vibe of the restaurant...More

We went on Taco/Tequila Tuesday. The whole night the kitchen was behind and never really caught up, despite delayed seating. Guacamole and salsa were very good. And I really enjoyed the black bean taco and shrimp taco I had. One friend ordered the shrimp fajitas...More

My husband and I have driven by this place a million times while usually heading somewhere else to eat, we decided to give it a try. We came on a Sunday afternoon, we were seated right away, and the food came quickly. First let me...More
