It is a very good place to eat, alittle hard to find, but it was to hard. For lack of a better term, a hole in the wall place. But the food is excellent! I had Carnitas ( thats how I can tell a good...More

It's in a bad/ awkward location. That aside, I think the service is great. However, the food is only 3 stars. I had chicken enchiladas with a brown mole sauce. I've had other chicken enchilada dishes at other restaurants, most recently in NY and Seattle....More

The vibe in here is awesome - sort of divey, sort of funky, all around fun. The margaritas are great and so are the tacos. They have taco flights! So you can get a plate with a few different tacos, rice and beans if you’re...More

Found this place on Yelp & so glad we did! The food is super fresh and if you're not sure what to order, the folks there are happy to help make choices. Tacos were petite (skimpy). Order a few if you're hungry. P.S There's a...More

Rustic, quirky place with phenomenal Mexican food! Don't be afraid of the location or proximity to a topless dancer club (or the fact these two businesses share restroom facilities) - the food is well worth it!

Hotel staff recommended this place. Out is a bit of a hole in the wall. Service was good, food not overly impressive, and the margarita was too sour but had a decent amount of alcohol in it. We all ordered tacos. I had the shredded...More

I don't get any of the hype from previous posts? From the less than pedestrian food, cavalier, horrible service to a hygienic nightmare. I'm a total fan of "hole in the wall" establishments & experiences with character and service; with food to exceed the expectations....More

Great spot for honest Mexican. Super chill. Keep in mind the place definitely shares a bathroom with the legendary Mary’s Club. If that offends you, then get go to Chipotle.

The great food more than makes up for the hit-or-miss service and shared bathroom (more on that it a moment). Just to be clear, the service isn't bad (not for me anyway), it can just get very busy at times and if you are of...More
