    Great food and great service. On Mondays they have a Nashville hot chicken taco that's delicious. The pork belly taco is out of this world.

    Service can be slow at times. But usually I'm here to relax so it's tolerable. Very good food and the staff is friendly. Reasonably kid-friendly but it's close quarters.

    Shrimp tacos were fantastic. Mystery beer for $2 can't be beat. It's usually PBR or High Life, but I've gotten Abita a few times.

    If you order a pitcher of Margaritas, make sure it doesn't cost you $40!

    Not a fan. Chips were greasy, cheese sauce was like melted velveta cheese and cold. Tacos were soggy and not that flavorful.

    Young goat and beef tongue tacos are Botha extraordinary. So is the quail. And the queso also rocks. Wash it all down with an organic margarita...beats the teeth out of sour mix

    When I'm happy I go for drinks on the patio. When I'm sick I go for pozole and tea. When I'm bored I go for chit-chat at the bar. My fave place in EAV.

    Stop in and purchase a koozie for $3.50. The proceeds benefit EAV firestation #13. While there enjoy a couple margaritas and must try their tortas and tacos.
