BEST tamales, guacamole & corn!!! Their drinks, especially the Paloma are awesome!! Love this spot for lunch or dinner. Great place to go solo and sit at the bar. Their green and red salsa are a plus.

We loved the fried chicken. It was juicy and delicious! The street style corn was tasty as well - we'd go back for both! The margaritas were fabulous, as was the homemade limeade that my daughter had. Good service - we loved it!
