First of all, the tequila menu is fabulous. The margaritas were average, but if you want sipping tequila, you will be in heaven. The food is good and the portions are reasonable. And then, to finish, they have only three deserts, but they are different...More

Our first time here on a Sunday afternoon. Pitchers of fresh margaritas, fresh chips and thick, chunky salsa, great guacamole. We split the quesadillia and added the pulled pork. SO good. We'll go back.

Great service, food and drinks at the hippest spot in Roanoke. Come for brunch on Sundays with $3 mimosas and mini pitchers of margaritas *24oz...Bloody Mary's or Tequila Sunrises. Extensive tequila list and very knowledgeable recommendations from our host Sean Joyner. Don't miss this gem.

We stopped in on a whim looking for an outdoor dog friendly patio - what a great find! The chorizo tacos and pork tacos are fantastic - will rival any taco from any taqueria- go traditional on the fixings. The tequila bar is extensive and...More

Excellent atmosphere. Tried both the house margarita and the ocho margarita. The Ocho has a stronger Taste of tequila if you like that. I prefer the traditional margarita. The fish tacos were excellent. Pan seared tuna. Do the traditional variety not the American variety. Excellent...More
