    Avocado margaritas are AMAZING. Tamales are nice and this place is vegan friendly.

    The service was horrible. Food was decent at best. Our sever Chris was the worst. Lighting in the place is very dark. Save yourself from the disappointing food, service and atmosphere.

    Avocado Magarithas are really good as well as the salsa

    The avocado margarita is divine! I got the tacos al pastor with red tortillas due to Foursquare recs, and enjoyed them, though I like flour tortillas better. Don't fill up on the chips - not amazing.

    Veggie tamales are great - wonderful portions. If vegan, sub out the rice since it is made with chicken stock; however, the beans are good to go (no lard/cheese/whatnot). Limited sub options otherwise
