This is probably one of the worst Mexican meals I have ever had. Avoid. Not only was the food horrible, but I was sick for over a week after eating here.

I don't like knocking a place especially when the staff is friendly and the place cute. To be fair the American cuisine is probably okay. One of our party wisely ordered a chicken version of a BLT and said it was fine and I'm told the burgers are good. Unfortunately as it bills itself as a Mexican restaurant and offers... More

Only one guy working the place and we had to wait awhile to be seated. But once at the table the service was good. Recommend the fresh made guacamole and pork street tacos. Salsa and chip were fine but not great.

The food is ok at best. Service was horrible. 5 of us ordered and only received 4 meals 2 of which were wrong. After realizing she forgot to put the 5th order in the waitress ignored us and came back 10 minutes later with a dish and that was wrong as well. Will not return or recommend.

A good Mexican restaurant. A solid regular for us. Love the place! You can get chips and hot or mild salsa free to start. Just don't eat too many before your meal comes!!!

I visit here for the guacamole but the street tacos need something new. I ordered both chicken tacos and they tasted identical. This was a business lunch. Others had tacos and salads. The food was okay.

I guess, given the prior reviews, that I like tasteless bland food! It was not as good as the Mexican food I had in places, but it was fine. I especially liked the braised chicken street taco. I ordered two for dinner but should have gotten three as was recommended. Nice comfortable atmosphere. Service pleasant. Surprisingly inexpensive.

We had lunch here with some old friends that we hadn't seen in a while. The waitress was accommodating to our desire not to rush (and it was mid-afternoon, so we weren't keeping people waiting.) Two appetizers and four meals later, we had no room for dessert. The food was very good and tasty and the portions were generous; the... More

We were privy to gossip and arguments between the waitress and kitchen staff from our table...lovely! Food was very slow to the table and when it finally got here, it was cold. We sent it back to be heated, and that took a full 15 minutes while we watched our waitress flit around the entire restaurant and the rest of... More
