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

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

The food and drinks here were fantastic, some of the best Mexican we have had. The place looked pretty odd but we are so happy we went. One heads up is that the bathroom is inside the strip club next door so might want to...More

For the hip and kid-less. Not your usual Mexican family restaurant. Don't bring your kids unless you want them exposed to the occasional stripper in full regalia from club next door on her break grabbing some grub. Another review said they deliver to bar across...More
