    Bloody Mary can be made vegan - just ask for it to be made with Worcestershire sauce. Garden enchiladas are also a great vegan option - just specify no cheese. Also loved the jalapeno margarita!

    Honey Jalapeño Fried Chicken Tacos are the best! And that bloody orange margarita on tab is very authentic and delicious!!

    You know a place is classy when they give you plasticware wrapped up in a napkin. Also hope ya like mushrooms because you can't get it taken off the veggie taco.

    Excellent food, the nachos were great and everyone else I was with really loved what they ordered. Anything you order off the menu will be delicious.

    We shared a lot of food, steak and pulled pork tacos were a little chewy. The Chupacabra burger was really good.

    "House favorite" pulled pork tacos are disgusting, & so is the fact that they do a SUPER limited SXSW menu, all served on paper plates w/ plastic cutlery. Lame. This is a restaurant, not a picnic.

    Service is slow, but friendly. The portabella fajitas are yummiest I've ever had! Salsa is wonderfully hot! Well worth the wait!

    The white sangria was very refreshing. The pork belly tacos a little too greasy.

    The bartender hates my guts, and my Patriots jersey ! And my Red Sox hoodie! He asked if I had Celtics socks. I told him I had Bruins undies... I hate his Yankees hat.

    Bring a water gun in the likely case that there is a table of college football fans pretending they're at the game and cheering loudly.

    Ok so, the food is awesome. Kinda weird that there is a unisex bathroom and people bring thier kids. Who wants to use the restroom in front of others children?
