Phenomenal brunch menu - lots of classics like biscuits and gravy, chicken and waffles but also lots of mexican-inspired brunch options as well. They have the best margaritas I've had in my life - used to be $5 on Sundays but I'm not sure if they still are. This place is a must every time I'm in Seattle. Also if it's nice out they roll up the windows and you're eating basically outside which is awesome.

“Great food. Great drinks. Great service.”
Reviewed August 6, 2014 via mobile

This place is awesome! Their food is really good. I had the Carnitas based off the server's recommendation, and it was awesome! Never had carnitas quite that good before. Drinks were a little pricey, but that's normal for this area of town. Decor was good/stylish and the staff was very friendly. Def recommend.

“Nice but noisy”
Reviewed July 22, 2014

I agree with the reviewers who are impressed with the food and design of the place. I find the noise level at least one step above what I consider to be friendly to socializing. The hard surfaces combined with the level of sound make pleasant conversation with even one person difficult. Also it was for a birthday and the waitstaff forgot until we were on our way out the door.

“Food average but nice atmosphere ”
Reviewed July 13, 2014 via mobile

Ordered the carne which was basically a steak fajitas and the tastes of all the food was good just a little bit cold. So was not overly impressed with food but service at bar was great and overall atmosphere was great.

We ate dinner here tonight and it was fantastic. The hubs likes spicy and I don't, so we asked for some recommendations from the server. We ended up with chips and guac, summer squash, shrimp enchilada starter and pork carnitas. They were all phenomenal. The pork carnitas were so tasty that we didn't even want to put them in the handmade tortillas. That plus one beer was $55--not cheap, but definitely super tasty. Served was great, and we had a table by the open windows--great for people watching.
