Upscale Mexican fare with terrific flavors in every bite. Don't miss the blue crab torta with avocado, my favorite with a Margarita.

Went with a couple of friends and have something (Torta?) that can only be described as a fried fish sandwich. Will come back for beers, but will have food beforehand

I stopped in for a light lunch with my husband in early afternoon. He left to go to a meeting and I stayed back to do my homework. The happy hour Sangria was too good to leave behind. A tall glass of red or white for only $6. We each got a street taco and the avocado salsa to share.... More

Accommodating & relaxed. Great food & service. Avocado Guacamole was tasty, the salsa wasn't as spicy as I expected. All the food; tacos, burritos, breakfast bowl & quesadillas all were yummy.

We had a great time here last Monday. Top shelf tequilas offered at Happy Hour prices all night. The tasting menu was fun and you get to try a few different foods that fill you up. Excellent salsa and chips flight. My fave was the carnitas taco. We had a very good server who brought some new tequila for us... More

Stopped by here on a Saturday for drinks and snacks, but decided to have brunch instead. It was 1 pm and not overly busy. We were seated promptly and ordered a margarita while we waited for the others in our party to arrive. Highly recommend the pepper infused margarita. It's got a good kick!
