    One of the must-visit places in Shanghai. They make the best margaritas.

    Try the Mexican wake up call... It's off the menu but it is the shit! Coffee patron, gold tequila, espresso and a little bit of cinnamon.

    Great, cheap, Tex-Mex comfort food. Sit outside for great people-watching on weekend nights

    Still my favourite guacamole in Shanghai. And who doesn't like to people watch as you bath in the sun on a weekend?

    The blackened fish tacos are a winner. So is the Carne Asada steak.

    Good Margaritas, Queso Fundido with Chorizo was good. Not happy with the taco itself, but the fillings where decent. Carnitas Guisido is was too salty. Attentive staff. Cheap for Shanghai.

    A place to be out an jar a drink with friends. Not the highest quality. For Mexican food go to pistolera in Pudong

    Lunch menu is good and for only 20rmb you can have sangría or margarita. Sangría is good. Avoid black beans though

    drinks were good, baja fish tacos were good, lengua chimichangas were good. the carnitas taco was not. the prawn ceviche couldve been more fresh.

    Sure it's not as good as any $4 burrito in the Mission, but we're in Shanghai and take what we can get. Nachos: huge. Salsa: tasty. Or try Maya, which is better but more expensive.

    This place is overrated, nachos and margaritas are ok but not as good as it's said. The place is too crowded and staff is not so friendly but the food comes really fast. I won't come for a second time

    In a pinch, it kills the Tex Mex craving but skip the corn tortillas and the black beans.

    Be careful, the burrito papito-it's just meat in a tortilla. Boring and definitely not a burrito.
