    Chef tasting is where it’s at. $29, we couldn’t finish all the plates just kept bringing and bringing. Says 3-course, that’s a lie, about 7-10 rounds came out. Delicious, all of it.

    Featured on FYI Philly - Check out the electric drink menu... all drinks are named after Grateful Dead songs! Also, try the classic Carnitas Taco!

    This place is good. Get a virgin strawberry watermelon margarita bc they do water down the alcohol a bit. Portion sizes are more than sufficient, I don't know why everyone is complaining!

    Order up the crab/shrimp Enchilada Con Mariscos and drink down the Espolon Blanco/Rhuby/grapefruit bitters "Loose Lucy" margarita, which'll loosen up more than Lucy. Read more

    The moonshine margarita is delicious. The tacos are small so order something else (soup or side) to go with it.

    The I'm a Killer Bee cocktail is deliciously refreshing for a tequila drink. The guacamole is so creamy and delicious - a must.

    The dining room can be a bit loud, it's not an ideal spot for a romantic dinner, but perfect for a raucous crew of friends.

    The tasting menu is a great value, and aside from the tacos, the Mexican pizza was a sleeper hit

    Plantains were great , Ceviche had great flavor but tiny portion , carnitas tacos were average , michelada was a disappointment and the brownie sundae was pretty awesome.

    Good food and tequila selection, but the sangrita needs serious help. It tasted like fruit punch. Not good.

    Skip the cauliflower tacos. The guacamole had way too much lime in it. The chochoyotes were good though!
