Located between the Majestic and Aztec Theaters, good place to visit before a concert. Really like their chips and salsa. Good happy hour. Had the mango pork carnitas tacos which were tasty, but cold. Service was OK. Convenient and satisfying, but not great.

Google maps and trip advisor maps is wrong. The location is actually on the opposite side of the river. Tacos were soggy. The carnitas tacos had no chipotle flavor. Chips and salsa were good. The bartender handled my lime with his bare hands after sneezing...More
