My friends and I come here regularly, especially on Monday nights when all margaritas are half off all night. The pineapple cinnamon margarita is especially fantastic, although we haven't tried a bad one yet. The infused tequilas are unique and interesting and I highly recommend trying a flight to experience some fun flavors. The chorizo cornbread bruschetta is AMAZING, as... More

I ate here while attending a conference for work. Went to dinner on a Thursday night and there was literally no one in the restaurant. The service started off great but went down a bit as the dinner went on. This is not your average Mexican restaurant and is tapas style. The food is... unique & different. Guacamole was good....

Fantastic food and their margaritas are the best I've ever had. A little off I-94 as we travel, but well worth the drive.

The tequila (hundreds to choose from) are offered in flights which consist of the brand's young, medium and old ages. We have enjoyed passing around each flight for everyone to sample and commenting to each other. Very fun!! Not being too familiar with Tequila, our server was the recommended guru (Zach) who did a great job when we asked for... More

This restaurant has many, many excellent qualities. The food is delicious, but overpriced bringing the rating down from a five. We went as a group of five and everyone ordered two plates to share. The Steak Diablo was fantastic, duck and bacon rangoons delicious, bacon wrapped jalapeños were also yummy. They create their own tequila infusions also for signature drinks.... More

Have been here numerous times and was pleased but tonight was the last time ever. HORRIBLE food and service. I brought an out of town guest who likes special tequila (they advertise multiple, custom tequilas). The server didn't know what tequila they had... RED flag. Then brought it not as ordered and was clueless about that fact. We asked it... More

Margarita Mondays have become a fan favorite of business people in downtown. With good reason. The servers are accommodating to our unique requests (veggies w/guac for our paleo friends - with no complaints). Speedy refreshing of the chips and pico with a smile. The tapas are unique, but the "go-to" dishes are the guacamole, pico and extraordinary margaritas.

A friend said this was the best Guacamole around. I had my doubts. I was wrong. It was as close as you get to Heaven without dying. Even the housemade chips were outstanding. We shared 3 dishes, all of which were outstanding. I don't know how this wonderful place slipped by me, but we'll be back!

Don't go expecting a 'big meal'. Portions are very small, and not inexpensive, but no complaint about the quality. The cocktails are always good and no more expensive than nearby restaurants. A table on the street is a great place to enjoy the evening.
