Great place for Mexican food and a lot more different selections. Drinks are wonderful. Atmosphere is great and the food is delicious. I go for their Mexican cuisine because their tacos are the BEST.

This restaurant is located in a trendy area in south Tampa called SOHO. It is a very popular restaurant with the local twenty-something crowd. There is a small parking lot adjacent to the restaurant with limited parking, but there is more parking across the street. My wife and I have eaten here twice and enjoyed their tacos. However, the delivery... More

Really good tacos, the meal comes with rice and bean. Their queso is pretty good too. The service is good but a little bit slow. They have lived music which is nice, but kinda annoying a little bit because it's LOUD.

I went here on a Sunday afternoon. There was a large crowd of 20s age at the bar watching football and it was incredibly loud - which was OK - but waitress could barely hear me to order. Im from Texas and have never been in a Mexican restaurant that didnt serve enchiladas. That just seemed really strange - just... More

Loved the tacos and very reasonably priced. The seating was a little tight, but overall great food and atmosphere.

The best margarita I've ever had. And I don't really like margaritas. The service was wonderful and very welcoming. Their tacos were great. I got the americano and i can't remember the other one. But it had some jalapeño on it. This place of definitely worth waiting. Although the hosted needs to do a better Job with time management. She... More

First visit and with all the Great reviews we decide to try this place. First, it was Super Loud. You cannot talk to the person next to you without Yelling. Then No enchiladas in a Mexican restaurant - weird. So we ordered Tacos which took over 30 minutes to get. Not sure why so long, waitress apologized for the wait.... More

I cannot tell you how utterly disappointed I was in my recent experience at what has been our 'go-to' 'to go' restaurant for more than five years here in SoHo. Calling in a to-go order before curbside pickup opens should not be a risk, but it clearly was either over the head of the staff working recently, or was of... More
