    Tacos and burritos seem to be the highlight but get the ahi tuna ceviche, it's a great appetiser for sharing. Service can be a little slow. Selection of tequila and mezcal is pretty good as well.

    One restaurant where you cannot go wrong with anything on the menu. Consistently fantastic food, drinks and desserts -- good fusion of contemporary and authentic Mexican/Tex-Mex. Friendly staff a plus

    The hipsters come for killer margaritas in the moody orange room, tequila-ficionados find a stellar list of primo shots at the bar, and a talented new chef has upped the kitchen's burrito ambitions. Read more

    Great atmosphere for dinner with friends. Shrimp ceviche was a perfectly sized appetizer. Tried one of the blackboard specials, Rucola, Serrano & Grilled Fig good (and light).

    Really awesome restaurant with a mexican wrestler theme and an extensive Spanish-language garage rock selection on the jukebox. Serves meat and whatnot but has solid, really tasty vegan options.

    Cantina Los Caballitos serves up mahi-mahi tacos topped with cilantro and onions (with guac and sour cream for a little extra). Cantina Dos Segundos brings you the same dish up in Northern Liberties. Read more

    Recently expanded, the only downside is that is also where they used to put the mechanical bull, but we'll survive without it. And you will, too, with lots of margaritas. [Ultimate Al Fresco List] Read more

    Probably my favorite nachos. Get the vegan beef. Even if you are not a veg. I think they put brown sugar in it or something, but it is extra good. The "small" is huge.

    The tacos are delicious and are large portions. Try to hold off on the chips if you can to save room for the food!! Check out for more tips! @phillyposts

    The pork belly burrito is amazing. Each crispy bite is like I've had a heart attack and resuscitated at the same time.

    The goat tacos are fantastic! Also, don't forget to order a pitcher of margaritas. They're deadly in the best way.

    Great vibe. It's so relaxing to sit outside. Many of the menu items are an interesting twist on classic Mexican fare.

    GREAT bloody mary's and the food is delicious. FYI: It tends to get extremely busy, especially on the weekends!

    The Caesar salad here is so good. Spicy, not over dressed, with cotija cheese crumbles and plantain chips. Try it and you'll fall in love.

    To all the jersey haters, there are no guidos here. It's nice here. Great atmosphere. Pleasant staff and you won't find a better margarita. #kony2012

    If it's cold out, request to sit away from the windows and entrance. We were seated by the windows and I had to wear my cost during my entire meal because I was so cold.

    It's usually pretty loud inside, sit outside if you can. They also won't seat you unless your entire party is present!

    Forget about brunch. Not worth it. Don't expect superior service or food, but it's just right when you have good company and want a pitcher. Also great for vegetarians!
