    Best gourmet food for your money hands down. Amazing margs, salsa, guacamole and chips. The best part you don't have to worry about them "recycling" the leftover salsa. lol

    Amazing! Friday night is great for $2 coronas. BBQ brisket taco is to die for! I get the Peruvian shrimp and substitute fried chicken, yum! Margaritas, esp. prickly pear, are great! Love it!

    Chimi's are really good and as you can see stuffed full. Great flavor and wonderful service. I would come back for sure.

    Fish taco and Korean BBQ taco (a special not always available) are phenomenal. They might rock your face right off your head.

    Their weekly specials are always worth checking out. They have a great selection of tacos and their Margaritas are great too!

    Tacos are ALWAYS good, check for specials and quesadillas! Queso is a MUST HAVE. Don't add the hot sauce to the salsa--way too hot.

    Got here and were promised a specific table; over an hour later we're still waiting and our table was split apart to seat larger groups who came in after us. Not a place to come with more than 3.

    The Peruvian Shrimp taco is to die! It has a special sauce that has a kick. It's a must have for lunch or dinner.

    If they have the surf and turf tacos, get them. They're very flavorful.

    The Peruvian shrimp tacos rock, but service is SERIOUSLY lacking. College girls are the ditzy hostesses. They dont take reservations. Wont be returning! Go to Yo Burrito. Much better!
