Came here with family. Service was very good. I had the Taco plate. 2 tacos and Baracho beans. I had the hot chicken and the Alabama White. The only drawback to these two tasty tacos was the pretty good coleslaw was way to wet, getting...More

Upscale tacos with a southern flair! I tried 3 different tacos and two were great, with the 3rd being good. The beans were ok the street corn was good! Short handed the day we were there so the service was a little slow but attentive.

Intimate atmosphere where upscale tacos and Tex-Mex style fare served. Ingredients are fresh, the bar service top notch and definitely a place to have a happy hour or casual business lunch.

We have always enjoyed coming here for the fun vibe, different takes on tacos, and the guacamole and chips. Guam still good, still a neat vibe, and portions worthwhile. But initial service last night was quite slow, and when the food arrived the black beans...More

I love this taco joint. Good food and friendly staff. Typically always crowded and they have a great bar scene. A great place to grab a drink and some apps after work.

I recently had dinner here with my daughter (14 yrs old). I ordered 3 tacos: blackened Grouper, Baja shrimp and Nashville hot chicken. All 3 were just ok. Not bad, but if you are a taco specialist, I would expect better tacos. The price and...More

We have been here when service was great, to go along with great food. We have been here when service totally sucked and the food was so-so. It hasn't been worse than that. You might get lucky!
