Excellent Margaritas. Empanadas and guacamole appetizers delicious. Loved the Gringo and Korean bbq tacos. Buffalo chicken and ahi tuna tacos were just ok.

Don taco is probably a little pricier than most Mexican restaurants but it’s well worth it. The tacos and burritos are delicious and unique.

From our experience, I suspect the server and chef will work with you to prepare whatever you may like. They were extremely accommodating. Suggest you take a chance and find out what they will do. Fun time.
