This is one of Kirklands favorites . Good food and feels local because its been in same location a long time. ...a fun street of local shops and restaurants. They don't change their menu often so consistent quality and they get meals out quickly .

This restaurant was recommended to my husband and me from our Uber driver. I found it to be a great find, and we experienced good service, as well as having many options that went beyond the expected Tex-Mex fare. I had the shrimp tacos which were wonderful, and my husband had the butternut squash enchiladas. Both were excellent choices. Good... More

This is a trendy restaurant with both indoor and outdoor seating (weather permitting). The interior was recently expanded because it's usually quite busy. The menu is more fusion Mexican rather than traditional Mexican. The food comes out quickly and it was tasty. They have a full bar as well and happy hour can get crowded. It's a little pricey but...

Roasted and what looked to be dusted with chili powder and a... More

One of best restaurants in Kirkland. Everything is wonderfully flavorful. Fusion Southwest cuisine. Tamales and soups especially good. Nice in summer to sit outside and soak up the atmosphere.

The food has always been fantastic but not being able to get reservations was a bummer. Now the bar is remodeled and moved to the other side of the restaurant. It's bigger and easy to get a table for 4 in a comfy booth. Ask for a spicy skinny margarita, they are the best!

We stopped in for dinner and enjoyed the al fresco seating on the last day in September. Walking by earlier this summer, it was always packed - a sure sign of a local favorite. Now that they have completed their remodel, it is better than ever. I had the shrimp tacos and they were fantastic - lots of heat in... More
