Had not been to this restaurant before. It looks very new. Decor is pleasantly modern and clean. There is outside seating with fire pits but as it was quite cold we dined inside. There is a great selection of quite unusual, in some cases, tacos....More

We went there for a late lunch so wasn't very crowded. We each got two tacos...I had a mahi mahi taco and a pork one. They were good but I've had better. The rice and beans come in tiny bowls and the beans were cold....More

Not very fond of this restaurant. Been 4 times and each time customer wait staff is not very enthusiast or willing to participate in menu questions. Food quality is less than blah. No tortilla chips unless you purchase. They do have some flour tortillas that...More
