“Funky place & great food”
Reviewed April 6, 2014 via mobile

We had a group of 5 including 2 vegans. Everyone had a great meal and the drinks were wonderful too. I love horchata! The portions are huge, so plan to split with someone or take home leftovers. I had the enchiladas al pastor and they were delicious. Others had burritos (bigger than their head) and nachos. The guacamole was wonderful. If I lived in Portland, I would be a frequent diner here.

“Food OK but Service Terrible”
Reviewed March 1, 2014

Food was not bad but service was awful. 20min to get an order - will not go there again. When the food was brought to the table it was dumped in front of me. Also had to ask for the chips and Salsa.

“Interesting, small, yet cozy”
Reviewed February 11, 2014 via mobile

I came here during the evening/night time. Though the place is a little small, it's warm and cozy especially when it's cold and snowing outside. I'm a whiskey girl, so I ordered pretty much anything that has whiskey in it and they were good! Here's the interesting part. While walking to the bathroom, I discovered something pretty interesting and I'll leave it up to you to discover that for yourself. But you must go during the night... So Enjoy!

“Awesome atmosphere, awesome food.”
Reviewed December 4, 2013

This place really is a win win, it is however very small so plan ahead. The likelihood of a wait is pretty high but well worth it. Burritos are massive, and drinks go down smoothly.
