The four of us wanted to try a new restaurant and heard good reviews from a friend. There was a special of $5 Bloody Marys so my husband ordered spicy and I ordered a mild version. Normally, the more heat the better for him, but...More

Comfortable seating, clean restaurant. We ordered a salsa flight, which was perfect for sampling the different heat levels of their salsas. The waiter wasn't very prompt with bringing our drinks initially, and I would have had another margarita but he never came back until the...More

Food was good, margaritas excellent. Place itself is not real big, nor fancy, but the flavor makes up for it. A bit pricey fir the portion sizes but worth the visit.

I got the burrito bowl without the shell & it was the most flavorful burrito dish I’ve ever had. You’re able to choose the type of meat (or veggies) for the burrito in addition to the spicy level. I got carnitas with the spiciest option....More

This place had really good food, and good deals after 9 but seriously... the service is frustrating. They seem to have no idea who owns small parties, I can't tell you how many times I've sat waiting for 15+ minutes only to have to ak...More

Eric was an attentive server and kept us with fresh chips and dips! (for a price!) Tacos were amazing for our table of 4. Beef were the favorite! Very good margaritas! Excellent food in a small venue!

Dinner at Nico's Taco & Tequila Bar was a very last-second decision. My wife had been there in the summer for Tacos and she was craving Enchiladas, and I'm always up for a good Burrito. We love the location and the general vibe: Casual and...More
