Went there after a disappointed meal at dosa. Food was super delicious and flavorful (except for desserts!!!) don't waste your money on them. House margaritas were really tasty. Place is nice but It gets really smokey!!! My eyes were watery from the smokiness of the kitchen. My clothes smelled like I have spent the whole day barbecuing, really gross!.

We had the Beef and Duck Tacos..the best in a while and the Chicken Mole was very good. All were well spiced but not over the top. Lots of beer choices and did not try desserts.

I enjoyed the delicious carnitas tacos along with their spicy margarita, both were great. The servers were welcoming and the vibe of the restaurant is trendy and fun!

I dropped in for a quick bite and a beer on a Tuesday night and they were able to give me a table immediately. The waitress told me what were the vegetarian options too. The menu was unconventional for a Mexican restaurant but good nonetheless. The food tasted good. A little expensive however. Friendly staff. Nice ambiance.
