    Mondays and Tuesdays mean Neighborhood Night! Buy one entree, get one for $5! Splitting the bill with 2 people makes the steak worthwhile. Get the ribeye, it's definitely better than the rotisserie.

    What everyone says about the Short Rib meat is true. Beautifully marinated, charred just right and available in either taco or hash form (which sounds a bit weird, but gets my vote for best dish).

    Great, consistently delicious. The waitstaff is friendly and accommodating. Have had almost everything on the menu, and all is between above average and great. Would order taco plates until I die

    The short rib tacos are absolutely delicious. The meat is seasoned well, the guacamole is very good, and the kale salad is fantastic!

    Current Fave Item: Crispy Chicken Spinach Salad! Delicious! Pleasant environment, readily available. Full service available in the bar, but in the summer the patio is where it's at!

    Monday and Tuesday is neighborhood night. Buy one pizza and get the second one for $5 dollars. Save even more by bring your own wine and the $5 corkage fee.

    Tacos (daughter says they're the best she's ever had), burgers (worth the extravagant price), and rotisserie chicken (blackened seasoning makes it special)

    Get a pitcher of their white wine sangria. And eat the fruits. They're delicious! Also, free sea salt chocolate chip cookies at the entrance if available!

    Dude, how come no one talks about the "comal griddled, made-to-order corn tortillas"? That's the reason why the tacos are so good. 🌮

    CONSUMER ALERT! Misleading or unclear, you decide: check in & you'll "unlock" deal, but check dates because mgmt will argue when it counts. M–T on leap year harvest moon days, Saturn 7th house etc…
