What a great little neighborhood tappy with good food. Great energy here. Lots of hipsters at the bar and sitting at tables, good music, very helpful and knowledgeable staff. Went for happy hour, the drinks were good. Had a blood orange margarita, which was refreshing, not sweet. Meanwhile ate some ok chips with a very nice guac - lumps of avocado in the mashed guac, nicely spiced. Ordered up a chorizo taco and a pork taco. Both were good, but the chorizo taco was exceptional. They are small tacos, which was perfect - you could order several different kinds. Flan for dessert was okay, but the trendy little apple slices on top did not really add anything to it. I intend to come back again and again! Three of us ate and drank (2 rounds each) for about $40. Amazing!

Nice stop for mexican food and margaritas. Always crowded. That's a drawback for me because I never know how long the wait will be because it seems as though the customers linger. Young crowd whom seem to enjoy their margaritas longer than I.

The worst thing about this restaurant is that it is two neighborhoods away. This place has fantastic drinks and incredible nachos. Everything is delicious and reasonably priced. The staff is friendly and helpful, and the jukebox has great music. I wish I was there right now.

I almost don't want to review this place. The more people that know about it, the harder it will be to get a table.

Nestled deep in Fishtown, this hipster haven brings you amazing south of the border fare in an ultra casual atmosphere. Happy hour boasts $5 margaritas and discounted nachos. The tacos are cheap enough that you can sample many, and I highly suggest you do as I have yet to have one that I didn't enjoy.
Don't forget your cash! They don't take cards.

We tried this small Mexican bar/restaurant on an early weekday evening recently, arriving about 5:30 pm before the crowds. Thus we got seated right away and were able to get our drinks and appetizers served quickly. Within a half hour, the place was standing room only at the bar with a wait line for the few tables that they have. You need to realize this is a very small restaurant with not too much capacity to accommodate large numbers. This is unfortunate because the food is terrific and creative, served attractively by talented staff. We were told the menu specials change daily; we were lucky and got to have duck tacos - yummy!
They are open for dinner every day staying open until 2 AM, and brunch on Saturdays and Sundays too. Items are available for take-out, a real plus for those close-by who want their great food without the hassle of waiting for a table or having to get their very early.
They only accept cash, but an ATM machine is available.
We will definitely go back because we live close by and the food is fantastic - probably order as take out next time.
