We were there about 8 pm on a Sunday. There was still a long wait but we were able to find a table in the bar area, which is almost as big as the restaurant. We ordered some build-your-own nachos and some "get your own" water. We got the mild house salsa, which was really just chopped tomatoes. We should... More

Hi there, I wanted to take a moment and respond to your review. First, I'm very sorry that you had a negative experience. We take our food and our service seriously, so to know that we did not live up to our own expectations is disappointing. We strive to leave our customers satisfied with what they ordered. Whether your burritos... More

First of all, the food is decent, and the bar area can be hopping and entertaining. But my positives stop there. The wait time is long. Service is poor and rude. The place isn't very clean, and don't be surprised if you find yourself asking for a new glass or silverware or plate because the one you were handed wasn't... More

Great burritos. We had great service also. We got there on a Saturday around 4:15 pm, we had to wait about 25 minutes. The bar has a great selection of beer and extensive drink menu. Would go again.

Very good choice for FRESH!!! One thing was cool is they don't accept tips found that very interesting for a restaurant. The staff was very friendly and the food was great. Pork taco was very filling.

While the food was good the service was indifferent and I wasn't sure why there was a wait as there were tons of empty, clean tables. The staff was polite but not overly friendly. The prices are slightly higher but that is because they have a no tipping policy, so I hope they pay the staff living wages!

You might think it strange to go here for breakfast, but it is good, popular, and yes you can find parking out in front. You cannot miss with the huevos rancheros, this time with the seasonable vegetables. Also 2 choices of coffees, so I always go with the dark roast, and they are very good at topping off your coffee.... More

Looking for healthy natural mexican food with servers who truly like their job because EVERYONE is a stockholder in the restaurant? This is it. Don't bother leaving a tip...it's built into the price and I assure you, this place is very reasonable in its' pricing. Don't want to eat but craving for a real excellent bloody mary Sunday after 12... More

On our trip to Athens for family weekend we were hungry lunch. The wait was long, but the food was very good. Everything is locally grown and tasted great. We will be back!

Were visiting friends in Athens and randomly found this restaurant. Since we had not made reservations, we ended up starting at the bar. Some of the drinks didn't seem to have the right proportions and these were adjusted to our liking. Would recommend the tofu fries and the home made chips. Several varieties of salsa that worked for our group... More
