Great food and service in this small, hip place. Kid friendly, decent prices and the food is not your standard Mexican combo place. Nicely located around lots to do in downtown. Would recommend.

The restaurant itself is small but the food portions are HUGE and amazing!! Everything was so fresh. We all ordered a burrito with cheese and hot sauce on top and it was absolutely mouth watering! I would recommend this chill spot to anyone.
