The food is amazing, service is great. But it’s excessively loud and noisy to the point were you can’t have a conversation without yelling and leave the place with a nice headache.

Though we were there in the middle of the afternoon, the food and service quickly answered the question of why this place was so busy. Service and food were excellent

They have this starter called Trio. It's salsa, queso and guacamole. Very, very good. Chips are delicious. I could have had 1 taco along with this starter and been more than satisfied. Two ate for under $30 on a Sunday am.
