The food was great. Opted for the chicken tacos. We shared and it was plenty. Extensive tequila list. They actually make their own sangritra from pico de gallo and it was delicious. Would absolutely go back again.

Small menu which is nice. Would rather have a few things done well than too much to offer and at mediocre levels. Margaritas were good, shrimp tacos are yummy, thai tacos are ok, but not much "filling". nachos are gigantic! Eat outside on the patio....More

Some of the tastiest tacos I've ever had, along with a funky vibe, friendly service and a nice outdoor patio if the temp hadn't been in the 90s. An outstanding dinner all the way around!
