    Local craft tacos and good margaritas. What could be better? I had an octopus special taco one time that was amazing. Get it if it's ever back on the list!

    We just finished food and still have not received our drinks, or even an apology upon asking about the fact that we havent gotten them. Thumbs down, unfortunately, because the food was actually good.

    My experience was awful, the service was terrible. Margarita was terrible. It was not a great experience after it was highly recommended by a local.

    The food is really good but the music they play here blows (crunchy white girl music) and the spicy sauce is not that spicy unless you are a pussy

    Start with the Queso or the Guacamole and a mixed drink. Then get two tacos and 2 sides...I highly recommend the Tres Hermanas taco!

    Great space. Expensive tacos. Not a great choice for food-picky kids.

    Go early to make sure you get a seat. Def try a margarita even if you aren't a tequila person.

    Fun atmosphere,great margaritas, awesome tacos - but a tad over priced. The decorative toilet may have been my favorite part.... ;)

    $9 for the house wine and only $4.50 for a taco. Good ingredients with poor execution. Pass.
