    Amazing Mexican food. Loved the guacamole with smoked trout and the crispy fish taco.

    Make sure the waitress tell you that things like lemon slices & salsa are extra. Love the place but the server we had wasn't on her A game.

    Get here early for brunch: place fills up quickly, even though it seats about 50.

    Oh, the michaelada tastes like rock, roll and bad decision-making skills. So delicious.

    The tortilla soup is basically a liquefied enchilada verde. Trust me, that is a good thing.

    Never ever ever come here on a Saturday night unless you want to wait 1.5 hours. Stick to weeknights & brunch or just order delivery. Fortunately the food and cocktails are well worth a long wait.

    The pitcher or half-margarita/half sangria are nothing to get too excited about... Not worth the higher price point. All the tacos on the menu are incredible!

    Great food and ambiance, but the service is aloof at best. More interested in hanging out with each other than taking care of the guest...

    Even better than the old location! Guac, Mexican corn on the cob, and chorizo-potato tacos are all AMAZING.

    The fish tacos are great. Stay away from the beef ones though. Not a fan of their "quesadilla".
