We stopped in for just a snack and got a huge and delicious portion of nachos with chicken that fed four of us for very reasonable price. Good margaritas and Mexican cokes. Enjoyed very much - nice dining room and waitstaff.

Having been to several Hispanic type food restaurants, my family and I always look to try someone else’s interpretation of Mexican food. I think that the venue is perfectly situated in downtown Asheville and if you are looking for somewhere to have a few drink...More

Upscale Mexican menus. Margaritas were excellent...I had two! Shrimp tacos were tasty as was the chips and salsa (you pick three from several offered).

I would have given this restaurant 5 stars, except the service was inexperienced (hanging out chitchatting at the front desk)... but the best spicy guacamole ever!!!

Service was good, but wasn't really impressed with the food. Cool decor, nice vibe. The margarita I had was delicious and refreshing. Might stop back in an give it another go if I were in town again, even if it’s just for the margaritas.

We went for an early lunch around 12pm the mimosas were great- heavy on the champagne (they way I like it) and the chicken nachos were big enough to split and were awesome!
