“The Best Margaritas”
Reviewed March 31, 2013

The food is wonderful, but the margaritas are top notch. Tiny restaurant, and there is usually a wait, but well worth it!

“No Joke, Best Mexican Ever”
Reviewed March 10, 2013

Been to all of Rick Bayless' restaurants and this place is every bit as good and better. I'd tried to go multiple times in the past, but couldn't even get close to getting a table (it's a small place to begin with). This time I showed up 15 minutes after open on a Saturday and still had to wait - but it was definitely worth it. The service is amazing, it seemed like every time I took a sip of water it was refilled.

The margaritas were fantastic, as was the guacamole of the day that they make with fruit (I had grape). It doesn't sound normal, but trust me it's great. The Bien Trucha tacos are great and I would suggest that each individual order something different so that sharing can happen. This is a gem and I can't believe I waited this long to get there!

“Small surprise”
Reviewed February 22, 2013

This place is small ---no tiny but great everything from the margaretas to the tacos are great .Margaretas are hand made with agave syrup and are fantastic Not your usual premixed drink .Selection of tacos are extensive from beef to shark Everything looks and tastes homemade .Warning though this pace is tiny and looks like a laundromat in a past life .Only about ten tables so be prepaired to wait or go on a weekday Everyone waits as reservations are not accepted but .It`s worth the wait Summer allows more seating in the rear but the popularity goes with

“Bien Trucha our new favorite restaurant”
Reviewed February 15, 2013 via mobile

You have to go to this place with the right mind set. You will wait to be seated....and be rushed to leave. But the food is phenomenal. The restaurant is really small, but that is part of the charm. We loved it and will be back again

“Most incredible Mexican food ever”
Reviewed December 31, 2012 via mobile

Let me start off saying that this place is very small, so you always have to wait , but it's worth the wait the food is a flavor explosion in your mouth. Small sharing portions but I have not had anything bad there. Always looking forward to going there.
