Reviewed July 27, 2014

Great food! had the fish tacos and some of the best I have had. Wish they would give you more chips with dinner. Get a few in a cone when you sit but no extras when we ordered Guac. so we had to ask for more and got charged. Guest had vegetarian tacos and they said they were great as well.

“Delicious, but pricey”
Reviewed July 19, 2014

We ordered tacos - one plate of fish, and one of carne asada. Both were delicious. It's not easy to find tender carne asada with such a great flavor, but they knocked it out of the park. We also tried two of their specialty margaritas, but they weren't as good as the "Build your own" margarita made with Hornitos Tequila and Triple sec. The chips and salsa were okay. Not the worst, but not the best I've had either. The empanada served with berries and sorbet was a pretty good desert. I do think most of the items were overpriced, however. I've never spent so much for tacos before, but overall we were happy with it. The aesthetic and location of the restaurant made an enjoyable place to spend some time.

“I'm not a taco fan but I'm a fan of these tacos”
Reviewed July 13, 2014

I'm not a big taco fan but this place was recommended to me by a friend. The tacos were delicious. You could mix and match however you like from the taco selections. The atmosphere is excellent the location is also excellent. You can't go wrong at this place. Vegetarian selections also available.

“Fresh, fun, original”
Reviewed July 9, 2014 via mobile

Went for date night realizing disappointment is always on the horizon in trying anything new. Whew... Couldn't have been better on all accounts. Ground zero trendy nob hill location insures great people watching on the sidewalk & in the tastefully simple dining / drinking space. Tried to sample , well more than necessary, glad we did. Great everything starting with the guaco & great chips & salsa. Drinks , went with a couple of margaritas from the extensive list. Very nice. No sweet & sour here ( thank goodness ). Entrees , fresh vegetable tacos that even 1000 words could not convey how good they were. Just get em if your remotely into fresh & flavorful. Shrimp tacos, lots a shrimp well spiced accented nicely with fresh cukes. Went overboard for 2 bucks for the black bean refritos. Again perfect & nicely toped with feta & fresh tomatoes. Clearly someone in the kitchen has a passion for this. All nicely presented. Service was timely as well as friendly much resembling their customer base. Think younger , cuter than you. , step outta the box have a great time. We did will definitely return.

Arrived near closing time, but they happily served us. Our waiter was very friendly and helpful. The tacos and margaritas were delicious. Very cute restaurant which sits on historic Route 66! Enjoy!
