    Their steak burrito is an excellent choice. Their guacamole leaves a little to be desired though...

    I've really liked everything I've gotten here. Meals come with really nice side salads with chunks of avocado. Good vegetarian options and the queso is amazing!

    11.00 for 2 crappy tacos with way too much goat cheese. This place has gone way down hill

    if you like the shrimp tacos, ask for the "old school shrimp tacos" they have chipotle crema on them and they're amazing. they'll make them special if you ask!

    $8 top shelf margaritas in Wednesday. So incredibly delicious. The sangria is killer, too. Sit in the bar area for excellent service by the ginger.

    The short rib nachos are the best thing in the world. There's more than enough to share, but you won't want to after you taste how good they are! Skinny girl margaritas go best with them!

    Beware of the chicken house salad--sounds healthy but there is an entire salt shaker in it. Ask for less salt!!!
