    going with a group? order a few pitchers of the house margaritas rather than ordering individual drinks. looking to skip a large entree? go w/ a order of tacos & a side of rice/beans! perfect portion!

    The vegan options are incredibly delicious and a must when eating here. I can now cross grilled cactus off my list of foods to try before I die. Friendly service and tasty margaritas too!

    A "palapa" is an open-air, thatched-roof structure; they're useful common spaces on hot, sunny days. Get the jicama with lime and chile, a popular and refreshing treat for just such days.

    Delicious, authentic Mexican. Pollo tinga tacos are incredible. Great chips, pico, and guacamole. They also bring out three unique salsas that are all wonderful.

    We saw this place when passing by and decided to give it a shot. Everything was delicious! I had some nice French rose, and my friend and I shared the chicken fajita and steak enchiladas. Will be back

    Brunch is so good here! Super affordable and huge portions. Get the huevos rancheros with a side of rice, a part of the $16 brunch special which also comes with a drink!

    Vegan plate $19-grilled cactus, red beans, guacamole, salsa, sautéed mushrooms and corn, served with warm tortillas. Ask for hot sauce & get 3 from mild to spicy.

    Get the shrimp quesadilla and guacamole. Pass on jicama picante, cocktails. Hit or miss menu. They give you three free sauces (Serrano, jalapeño, chipotle) and refill them when asked. Good service.

    Fresh fruit margaritas are amazing, I really loved the passion fruit and mango flavors. The food is also great, the Chile Relleno were made perfectly, not to greasy.

    Recommend the Huevos Monteleños. Every flavor you could ever want in one dish. Bacon. Eggs. Cheese. Plantains. Crispy tortilla.

    Taquitos de papa were awesome, but barbacoa is not real Mexican barbacoa, they pour a guajillo sauce on it that is good, but takes the flavor out of the lamb. For appetizers go with jicama.

    Get the shrimp taco, says James Traub: "The delicate mixture of spices, and of hot and sweet, and of creamy and crunchy, leaves your palate feeling like it’s had a perfumed bath." Read more

    Great for bday parties...can get about 20-30 in the back and it's open bar. A little overpriced, but not crazy and plenty of alcohol
