“Try the CartaBlanca beer with any taco. And the brunch too.”
Reviewed March 7, 2014 via mobile

Awesome place. Very good food and nice selection of beers.

They keep improving their menu every time.

Perfect place to have brunch too. You've got to try the chilaquiles

“great cocktails and food”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

Love the Detroit Tart cocktail! If you like tequila but are looking for something different than a regular Margarita check it out. I appreciate that they have veggie options including a veggie dog and a veggie taco. The salsa flight is also great. One of my favorite places in Ferndale.

“Good for young people”
Reviewed December 31, 2013

Different kind of place and it appears to appeal to millenials and folks with children. Small plates and limited menu. Had the tacos and two different hot dogs. Corn on the cob was interesting and the place appeared popular. Good bar and service, but very dark. Communal seating for the most part. Try the Mexican coke, as it is made with cane sugar and it is very tasty. Had never had it before. Go and try and decide for yourself, as Ferndale is becoming a happening place.

“Tacos & Cucumber Margs”
Reviewed November 18, 2013

We ordered one of each taco, plus the special (tofu). The tofu was my favorite, hands down. The pork w/ pineapple and regular pork were also good. Didn't like the steak or vegetarian. I liked the corn tortillas, but my boyfriend didn't. Bartender suggested the Cucumber Margarita and dang it was good. I have never had one with cucumber before, but it made it not too sweet, PERFECT! Will definitely go back, good atmostphere, friendly staff. Tacos came out in literally 5 seconds. Oh, the guacamole was good too (and I am picky about my guac!)
