My friend and I went on a Saturday night for some drinks and food. Our bartenders Cam and Misti were the absolute best! They were so kind, outgoing, and our service was very fast. Very fun/cool atmosphere and like I said, the best bartenders around!...Highly recommend.More

The vegetarian tacos are so good and their drink menu is fantastic. We go here whenever we visit Vancouver and are never disappointed. Their Happy Hour was from 12-5pm which rocks.

We just happened to be staying across the road from The Pawn Shop. We met up with a New Zealand friend who lives here and enjoyed our meal here.

We chose this place for the proximity to our hotel and the look. We were pleasantly surprised with the taste of the food. I had the taco al pastor and it was a wonderful mix of flavors. We were there early so there were no...crowds and the service was great. And of course, tequila makes everything better!More

We went for happy hour and were not disappointed. The place was packed and had a very relaxed fun atmosphere. Service was fast and the tacos and drinks were delicious. Next time I'm in Vancouver I'll make sure I get back to try out some...of the other menu items.More

As others have recommended the Happy hour is great. At happy hour prices you’re definitely getting a good value play. I wouldn’t want to pay full price for the size of the tacos that they’re offering. I also had a beer with a huge foamy...head which is always annoying. The foam took up the top third of the glass. I know that’s a pet peeve of mine but I still find it annoying when the bartender gives a sloppy pour.More

This is a great spot in Vancouver to have a cheap, good meal. During happy hour you can get chicken, beef, pork or a vegetarian taco for $2. They are small bites so you will want to have the minimum of 3. The atmousphere was...lively and there are tv's for sports fans!More
