Really fresh Mexican food in a funky environment. At about $7 per taco prices are getting a little up there but you don't mind considering how good the food is. Plenty of gluten free options which was handy too. We'll be back.

Loved this place. Staff were lovely and more than happy to talk about the food and give their recommendations. The beef burrito was to die for. Absolutely delicious little restaurant.
