In the old “Florence” space, vibrant (loud) and trendy restaurant. More of an upscale menu than a typical Mexican restaurant here in Savannah. Delicious chips and salsa, which I consider a mandatory requirement of a Mexican restaurant. Nice selection of tacos, burritos, fajitas and enchiladas. Our group had fajitas and enchiladas which were really good. Good selection of beers but no iced tea? All agreed we have never been to any restaurant in this town without iced tea......

We recently went and shared the Flautas(wonderful) and then each of us had one Taco of Camarones and Chicken and both were very good,although we agreed the Shrimp was a little better.
Good food at good prices is always a HIT.

Food delivered as it was prepared. One at a time. One of my guests got hers 15 minutes after the rest of us....AND it was wrong food. Yes it was crowded but not comfortable with some eating while others wait. Quality was good, not great.

Husband and I went here for dinner on a Saturday night. It was packed. We lucked out and got two seats at the small bar pretty quickly. Wine options - red, white or rose - are basically non-existent but they all tasted fine. Selection of cocktails and tequila is much better. Our bill for 4 glasses of wine, elote (the corn appetizer) and 5 street tacos was only $42. The food was awesome; very tasty. FYI: Tacos were served on corn tortillas for all of you gluten-free people out there, and there were vegetarian options. We will definitely be back.

This place definitely beats the other taco places in town. Doesn’t try to be pretentious with its taco offerings(bull st taco). Everything I had was fresh and delicious. Taco portions were large too. Can’t wait to go back.
