“Amazing tequila selection but not food selection”
Reviewed February 20, 2013

If you have no back problems, you will when you leave there.
The seating on a block of wood was extremely uncomfortable, my butt
went numb after 15 mins.
Service was very slow, food was not great.
But if you love Tequila and don't mind sitting at the bar on a block of wood, then you should try it.

“Terrible service , NOT recommended”
Reviewed February 5, 2013 via mobile

It's unfortunate that I have a negative review even though I didn't eat here. As my friend and I walked in, the front staff ladies completely ignored us, maybe it was discrimination because we are not very tall and were not dressed up but the two ladies behind us who were tall and pretty got served before us and they didn't have any reservations. When the front staff finally acknowledged our presence she said its a 45 minute wait because I don't have any reservations. I felt discriminated and disgusted with their service so we left and too bad we never will return to this place. So I Do NOT recommend this place to anyone.

“Table service guacamole!”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

Great salsa, great guacamole! My dining companions liked the chicken salad and burger selection they chose. I only had the" non Mexican" table water($1:00 per bottle) which is ridiculous.....and the guacamole and salsa. both excellent.

“Excellent Tacos, Great Drinks”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

Definitely worth the trip for the drinks and tacos. The food seems to be very authentic Mexican food and the selection of Tequila is unbelievable. The décor and the atmosphere makes this an outstanding addition to the restaurants on 4th St.

“Kept us waiting almost 2 hours”
Reviewed January 19, 2013

We stopped by this restaurant on Friday night. The hostess said it was a 45 minute wait, which is pretty standard for a Friday in Calgary and they don't take reservations, so we waited. After an hour, we asked how many groups were ahead of us so they checked their ipad app and said "two". So we kept waiting. Every time we asked again how many people were ahead of us, they said "two" yet we saw them seat 4-5 groups in that time who got there after us. They let their friends, the manager's friends, and people who complained louder in before us. Only when you lose it on them do they seat you. We waited 1 hour and 50 minutes total. The best part was when the hostess came into the vestibule to give everyone waiting margueritas, ran out of drinks right before she got to us, said she'd be right back with more, and never came back. The male server we had was excellent but the food was just ok. Huge disappointment and will never return to be treated like second class citizens again.
