Stopped in for dinner at a friends recommendation. The margaritas and Tacos were great. The service was even better. Our waiter was patient, super sweet and treated us top notch for our first time. Definitely will be a stop in the future.

Solid Mexican with a very distinct vibe. Margaritas weren't great and it is loud, hard to have a convo. Overall, a very good experience

This places is great. I like the food, the bowls are healthy and delicious. Too bad I didn’t take a picture. I don’t give 5 stars because of the wait. The 3 times I’ve been here the wait for a table and food is ridiculous.
