    Wasn't crazy about the pomegranate sangria. I ordered the chicken sopes, which were too crunchy. Atmosphere is beautiful though with great music. They do not skimp on alcohol which is a plus!

    Super expensive for the amount of food you get. It was decent as far as flavor. I only go 4 tiny shrimp on the shrimp taco. It was mostly cabbage and tortilla. The rice and beans were tasteless.

    Bought a brunch groupon and glad I did. Chilaquiles with salsa verde is amazing! $5 mimosa on Sunday. Bloody Mary's kind of gross, taste like liquid smoke. Mimosas and margaritas really good!

    Bloody Mary is way too spicy. Tastes like steak sauce. The Margaritas are way better.

    Great food in a great atmosphere. Prices were just a tad high for the smaller portions they serve.

    Food is very tasty and well presented! WOW decor, waitstaff very knowledgeable (do try what they suggest), kitchen still glitchy with order fulfillment. Pork guacamole was awesome!
