Whether I eat in the Dover location or one of their others it's always good. This was my first visit to the Portsmouth location. Much smaller than Dover, or it felt like it as we sat up front. Had one of those "slow motion" moments...More

I went in today with two coworkers, ordered a strawberry margarita and it tasted too sweet and artificial. Not expecting real strawberries, but definitely not expecting chemicals. Had the tacos with pork carnitas, pork tasted funky and tacos were bland. Waiter seemed very nervous and...More

Looking for food while driving around and noticed this place. Nice reception. Quick Service. Had the burritos and fish tacos. The beer was ice cold. The Blue Margarita was perfect. Reasonable prices. Definitely would revisit if in the area again.

Restaurant is like a college bar, noisy, raucous a bit messy. Service and food were not all that great either. I ordered a three taco combination that is supposed to be accompanied by a trio of sauces. However, my tacos arrived at the table with...More

Stopped for a late lunch. We had a taco salad with carnitas and Hectors Quesadillas with chicken. Delicious! Our server was Ariel & she was attentive & sweet. Our bill with two non-alcoholic drinks, without tip was $29.93.

This restaurant is alive with a Mexican influence - the wall art, the bar tiles, the overall decor is wonderfully authentic - most of it comes from south of the border. The food is very fresh and prepared fresh on the premises - down to...More

Don't quite understand the bad reviews, the food is fresh and filling and the quality is decent for the price. We had some custom Margaritas made and the quality was excellent .Atmosphere was nice and lively at around 4 pm, would recommend. Order the Enchiladas!

People flock here but I think it is for the bar not the food. The food is overpriced slop. Try Agave instead.
