“Always delicious. Except the Michelada. ”

Im really picky about Mexican food. To me, it can't taste homogenized. I like machengo cheese, not monterrey jack. This place has authentic dishes, nice vibe and strong drinks. Great guac, queso fundido and a great dish called chicken Ranchero. Creamy, spicy and stuffed with cheese and chorizo. Great chiles relleno too. The pictured drink, a Michelada, was terrible. Described as a Mexican bloody Mary, it was beer with tomato juice and a lot of lime. Bloody nasty! Couldn't drink it. The waitress asked if I would like something else and she charged me. Thankfully the food was great, as well as the margarita replacement.

Love the “craft” margaritas. A little more money but worth it! The fajitas are great! I usually get the veggie fajitas but the specials are definitely worth getting! A great atmosphere. Staff are very accommodating!

This is literally the best Mexican food that I’ve ever had. Very high quality and delicious! I highly recommend the shrimp or fish tacos, worth the $$ for sure. Great service, great atmosphere.

Nice modern Mexican place. Pretty. High ceilings. Busy.

Hostess said wait would be 20 minutes and she was right. Enjoyed enchiladas and el pastore tacos. Chips, beer, margaritas. Two of each, yes. Yummy.
