    Everything is good! Go before 8pm to avoid a long wait. It's kind of small.

    Unlike most burritos, the cheese is given time to melt, so it fuses with the steak, adding a savory creaminess. Read more

    Mango margarita was on point. The Cameron tacos 😋😋. The only thing I don't like about this place is the long wait & they don't split checks. I will be back again though.

    . The agua fresca is a must, lovingly handcrafted and delicious. The shrimp ceviche is flavorful and refreshing. The barbacoa is the best I've ever had. The shrimp tacos were just meh for me.

    Small portions are made up for with high quality & big flavor. Absolutely loved the margaritas & guac to start. The steak burrito & the shrimp and fish tacos were fantastic as well.
