Quick fun stop on the 21st birthday tour! Bartender was great, quickly accommodated our party of 20 with margaritas for all! Thanks a bunch.

We stopped here for lunch, upon the recommendation of my son who has eaten here several times and loved it. It's a relatively small place, easy to miss as you drive by, and with street parking that gets competitive. The menu is not very big, but there were some specials on the chalkboard which added to the selections. I was... More

This place is great to go to in mixed company as its menu is mostly meat-centered but also has vegetarian options that really shine- at least what I sampled did. Definitely get the vegan seitan wings if they're available. They're heated just right and the vegan ranch sauce they come with is amazing. We ordered two vegan cheesesteak burritos to... More

Very fresh Mexican food. They have two types of chips too, which I like. The chips that go with the guacamole are different than the chips that go with the salsa-both great. The Chimichanga is my favorite. It is not your typical thick, deep fried brick that some places have, it is made to order perfection.

It's in my neighborhood, but so are a lot of other Mexican restaurants. The guac is good, and they do offer lots of vegan options, which is a plus. They deliver, but so do lots of other places. Bottom line: the food is good, but it's not that great or memorable.

Great food but loud atmosphere. Not suitable for first dates since its very loud in the restaurant and you can barley hear the people you are with. Everything I tried was great and the service was good.

I have eaten at this location on several occasions, and will continue to go back - be it for date night, or a family lunch/dinner. The location is on the smaller side and casual. The music tends to be the sound track of anyone's life who lived through (and enjoyed) the 90s. I find myself singing along and embarrassing my... More

My favorite meal is the ceviche on their special board and vegan nachos. Yum! Very flavorful and enough food that I always take some nachos home. Their guacamole is very good as well. They have a nice wine list but they are all Spanish wines that I don't know, however, the servers are pretty good about choosing one when I... More

We were in the Northern Liberties area of Philly for a short stay and our host recommended this place for Mexican Food. It was a quick lunch for us. The wait was not long and the service was good. It was a very nice warm Fall day but we chose to sit inside. The place felt cozy in a good... More
