The great food more than makes up for the hit-or-miss service and shared bathroom (more on that it a moment). Just to be clear, the service isn't bad (not for me anyway), it can just get very busy at times and if you are of...More

The food and drinks here were fantastic, some of the best Mexican we have had. The place looked pretty odd but we are so happy we went. One heads up is that the bathroom is inside the strip club next door so might want to...More

Very small 'weird' little hole in the wall. The Cochinito tacos were to die for! I also loved the Capirhna! However after a few drinks and needing the restroom I found out they share one with a seedy strip club next door! Yikes there were...More
