The menu is very different. You can't order an Iced tea or a Burrito (the menu even explains why they don't serve burritos). You can drink alcoholic beverages, water or very expensive smoothies. The food was different but fantastic. We ordered a spinach quesadilla which is on corn tortillas and was great and a Chicken sandwich? I don't know the real name, that was enough food for 2 people and was again great. The patio was really nice, like a backyard garden. The prices are high average but the food was worth it.

I loved it! Great food and a wonderful space. Killed patio also. It will become a new favorite on a very short list.

amazing gourmet mexican food, fresh and tasty, prices can get high but the flavors are usually worth it. $3 tacos recommended when you're on a budget, $20 specials are a great treat to share every once in a while. also, they're not the type of place to serve chips and salsa or tons of cheese, if that's what you're looking for.
