    Live a little, give the lengua (beef tongue) taco a shot, it's not bad. Also get yourself a Tequila Flight, I'm a big fan of the Tour of Mexico.

    We've seen plenty of places come and go at this location; here's hoping this one stays. The Seta Tacos were fantastic.

    At the risk of sounding old, this place was way to freaking loud! Having to yell across the table all night is not what I want to do at dinner. That being said the food was OK, nothing special.

    The fried fish taco was the only edible one out of the 4 we tried... Steak and both Pork. Drinks were just ok. Not sure what they hype is about. Service was good.

    To continue! Had dirty plates stacked for an hr, no water or drink refills, would walk up to the table and just look at us. Im guessing that was code for "DO u need something!" And it wasn't even BUSY

    Tradicional margi - Nice! Fish tacos - served on flour tortillas; flavorful yet throw some hot sauce on the bad boys. Staff is amazingly friendly!! Will definitely return!

    Carnita tacos r great. Queso Fundido has runny cream like sauce under the queso and good stuff so it is not queso fundido! But the cheesy top layer is good!

    Slow service even when there's no one there. Don't bother if you expect the server to be there when you run out of something. And REALLY don't bother if you're in a hurry.

    Tacos are decent. Make sure to be clear with your waitress your order some do not pay attention very well and you may get something different.

    This place is to die for...where else can you get a beef tongue taco, a braised goat taco, and mahi mahi taco, with fresh ceviche for under 20 bucks?

    Created by mixologists Adam Fox and Gilberto Marquez, the selection is built almost exclusively on tequila and mezcal — but don't let that fool you into thinking this is all lime juice and sunrises. Read more
