Loud, local tequila joint with amazing tacos and very good guacamole. (As for the guac a bit on the spciy side, otherwise it can be bland.) Drinks are not hcepa but the tacos are reasonable, and other good more complex dishes, like the mole' make this worth a visit.

Service can be slow and uncaring, but still wortyh the visit.

I had dinner here with my wife.

We got two tacos, nachos with guacamole made on the spot by the chef, two main course and three bottled beers. 85 dollars excluding tips.

Staff was friendly, caring and helpful in the choice of the dishes, which were all very good. Mexican beers were good too. We ate inside due to the hot weather, but I would recommend eating outside especially if inside there are lousy and crying tables of girls which really do not know how to properly behave (or maybe were simply drunk due to the margaritas promotion going on).

I like to sit at the bar here because the bartenders are generally more interested in their job than the aloof waitstaff. The hostesses are in la-la land too. However, the cocktails and selection of tequilas are very good and I like the Coronitas. Too bad the bar stools are a killer on the behind! Keep the food choices simple like tacos, rice and beans and guacamole. We like the music too!

This is not a quiet place (poor acoustics) but with the crowded bar sampling their regular and exotic frozen margaritas (think Blood Orange) and the music in the background, this makes it a fun place after work during the week. The food is pretty good and the portion siZe is good. Prices are edging on the high side. the chips are homemade (or at least they taste that way). I like the chicken enchiladas and the fajitas.

Finally! It’s so hard to find a place with good Mexican. A bit pricey but really good. The guacamole needed salt. Looked like homemade tortilla chips. I ordered the chicken fajitas, they were really good. But….no cheese? It was really flavorful so it didn’t need it. The drinks were “eh” the mojito was terrible.
