    Great food! I love the catfish tacos/burrito and the tofu tostada. Service doesn't match up with how great the food is. Servers act as if they are doing us a favor by serving us. Arrogant and slow.

    They fry their chips in peanut oil, but 2 people with severe nut allergies were able to dine safely! Quesadillas are well-prepared and food-coma-inducing.

    Best downtown restaurant for sure! Love their lobster, catfish and tilapia tacos. Also enjoy the steamed spinach and quinoa with goat cheese and catfish strips.

    Some of the best Mexican food in the area, but if you're ordering delivery you'd think it's actually coming from Mexico -- so slow.

    The jerk chicken soft tacos were delicious! Comes with a side of beans and rice. Definitely filling. Make sure to ask for jalepanos on the side to give the dish a bit of a kick!

    Great beer selection. Nachos are great munchy food. Catfish burrito is the staple. Cornbread will make you wanna sew your ass shut.

    The cornbread and guacamole are the best that I've ever had at any Mexican restaurant. Their chipotle mayo is definitely a hidden gem.

    I can't get enough of the Catfish burrito. The guacamole is a delicious starter. Great sangria too. They don't have liquor so no margaritas but the amazing food makes up for that!

    If you're craving some Mexican food that isn't Chipotle, take a trip down to Alto Cinco. It's near the Westcott Theater so you can stop before or after a performance!
