This place had some tasty stuff- no doubt. Anyone who will put fries inside a burrito is a food genius. Service was ok (it was a busy night) but the foods was out of this world. Will come back for sure!

Today is St. Patrick's Day, and Tampa is one of many fun cities to visit for St. Patrick's Day. They dye the river green, people are generally friendly and not too unruly, and everywhere seems like a party. However, St. Patrick's Day is not what...More

Rude staff unwilling to accommodate large parties. Very impersonal. The food that we (finally) received after an hour was just okay.

Went there last July for birthday party....great place, good booze, food was great, service a 4 out of 5, and outdoor spaces that seem to flow out of the indoor spaces.

Two of us ordered the Latin Lover, which we could choose which enchiladas and tacos we wanted. All were really good. My Gram orders a chicken and cheese thing which was really good but super spicy. Very good chips and salsa(lots of cilantro).

First time in town. Staying at a local hotel and they said there were some good restaurants in the area. Walked down the street and found this Gem. Food was exceptional, service was outstanding and I couldn't believe how reasonably priced it was for the...More

If you have kids, you may not want to go to this restaurant. We honestly have never heard more people yelling F bombs and screaming for more shots at a mexican restaurant before (at least not before 8pm). There were a few separate big parties...More
