    Try Morrissey Mondays! Awesome music and great specials on PBR, Tequila, & Tacos! Great crowd, good atmosphere, and yummy food... Could have more for vegetarians but not bad though! :)

    Hip, upscale Mexican joint. 10 types of tacos. Try the huitalacoch: it's corn fungus, but don't be scared; it's awesome. Dishes range from $5.95 to $16.95. "More Info" for review: Read more

    Don't know why everyone is so critical on the food, it is what it is. Great spot during happy hour for cheap, well thought out food. Same owners as Mezcal but tacos better here. Window open till 4am!

    food was decent... Besides, you're not coming here for tacos autentico anyway. This place is about the booze. The selection is comparable to other tequila bars, the coin styles are perfect. Fresh!

    Tacos are awesome especially, the El Diablo tacos. Also the Cochinita Pibil torta. Decent service; solid Mexican food.

    If you go to the taco window and don't take care of Scotty, you're a dick. The man his food and deserves at least as much as any waiter.

    You probably are coming here for Mexican food but the highlight, by far, are the ribs! Highly recommend them! Melt off the bone ribs.

    The margaritas are so unpredictable except you can be sure they won't have any tequila. This time the lime juice was over powering. I'm giving up.

    If you want to learn about tequila, come here. Employees are quickly becoming tequila connoisseurs. There should be no need for salt and lime people!

    For almost ten bucks a plate, you'll get much larger portions at Chipotle. They also charge for the chips and salsa, but why?

    Tequila!!...try the Micheladas and Chelas. The tacos are over price but good, the service is slow and host/hostess lame. Fun only for happy hour in the bar.

    Besides the ribs, I'd recommend the amazing nachos but apparently "they don't want to make them right now". This place gets worse an worse. Good food but as a restaurant, not well executed.

    F*ck you, Nick. Your 'tude is shitty and totally scared us off. Your lucky Diablo is one of the few late night eat joints on south Broadway otherwise you'd kill their biz.

    Remind your server to put tequila in their margaritas. Apparently they make them without alcohol by default.
