    The food here is really top notch, but it isn't cheap. Has to be the most expensive guacamole I've ever purchased.

    Order the Queso Fundido Con Carne as an appetizer or pair it with another tasty appetizer and make it your meal. The Short Rib Enchiladas were also a tasty treat.

    If you're hungry, skip the tacos and get some enchiladas. Portions are much more generous.

    The Carne Asada was straight up delicious, accompanied by some amazing creamed jalapeño corn. Best tres leches cake I've ever eaten. Guac and margaritas were solid as well. Can't miss at this place.

    Large margarita and guac options. Cesar Chavez guac is original and flavorful. Recommend the shrimp tacos. All busy, best to make a reservation !

    Their breakfast burrito offered at brunch is DELICIOUS. And their breakfast tacos are also a generous portion and really great. El Vez seated us immediately and we had excellent service.

    Big disappointment. I ordered huevos rancheros. The salsa and the tostadas were store bought! Totally ruined it the dish. The only good thing was the Piña tequila drink I got.

    Blown away by this place. Service was slow but food was amazing. Sea bass tacos (!!), Queso Fondido(!!!), Chicken Tinga Quesadilla, Poblano rice, corn, were all equally delicious. A must try!!!

    Those Blood Orange Margaritas are the best, luscious flamboyant sweetness with utterly side-tongue tangling citrus and of course the calming of tequila!!

    The guac is a must have and I recommend the option with the crab. Margaritas are well made, order them with Don Julio, you won't regret it. The taco sampler is a good way to taste all options.

    Hostess told me an hour wait then proceeded to seat two different parties before me telling them there is no wait. Terrible I had to play games to get seated before them.

    The wait is always absurd on weekends. Put your name down and grab a few drinks nearby before dinner
