    The Smokey Margarita with hum (locally made, the 'World's Most Unique Rum'), Mezcal and a lip-smacking chile rim is worth the trip unto itself, but with food it really comes to life

    A standard taco order allows you to choose four different fillings—from skirt steak to fish to veggie and seven other choices—accompanied by a trio of salsas. Variety, amigos.

    The shrimp and scallop ceviche is worth trying. The fresh green peppers and avacado round out the flavor of the shell fish.

    Shrimp & scallop fajitas were fantastic! Also, my daughter loved the short rib sopes. Seriously friendly staff!

    Try the guacamole. It's prepared right in front of you to your custom taste. Also, you can't go wrong with the blood orange margarita.

    Good salsa. Great fish tacos. House margs are good but a bit on the small side.

    Skirt Steak Tacos are good. Good service and was rather relaxed, even during the Bears' game.

    Even if you don't normally like mojitos, you'll love the Cucumber Mojito here.

    This place was highly disappointing. The food didn't taste like authentic Mexican food, the waitress was rude, and it was a hassle to get more chips and salsa. Never coming back to this place.

    Salsa has no flavor and the chicken tortilla soup was really just canned tomato soup with chunks of chicken thrown in. Service was slow and waitress was rude
