    This Mexican restaurant is simply amazing. The food is nice, eat and drink at the bar to make most of it. Craft beers are refreshing while the tacos tickles your tongue

    It was awesome. I had the surf & turf burrito, frozen house margarita and was easily convinced by our dime of a waitress to try the frozen mojito. Everything was great! I'd go again for sure!

    Hearty twists on all of your Latin American faves...tacos, burritos, enchiladas, tortas, etc. The mole enchiladas rule, and the California burrito is like rolled up lomo saltado. Bring an appetite!

    Go for taco Tuesday. The Tecate beer is cheap, but the margaritas are worth the extra cost. The street tacos are amazing and the hot dog they make is great, especially for $2.

    Come during happy hour (3-7) to get some great deals on some of the best Mexican you'll eat outside of Mexico! The Guacamole is amazing, and they have a HUGE tequila menu.

    Spicy marg was legit and the fried cheese was on point. Was there to grab food around midnight on a Thursday and it was more of a bar scene, the music was definitely too loud but still enjoyed overall

    Amazing taco Tuesday! Try the hot dog as well - it was awesome. Any of the tacos were great - $2. $2 Tecate was OK - but spend the money for the margaritas instead!

    Best happy hour in the Gaslamp. We come here 2-3 times a week. Nicole and Devin (a.k.a Devil) are the best servers. You definitely get your money's worth here!!

    Go to this Gaslamp Quarter bar during happy hour (3 p.m. to 7 p.m. daily) for half-price drinks and appetizers (including carne asada fries).

    Carne Asada fries are a must! Especially during Happy Hour! They are 50% off, and so are their amazing margaritas! It took three of us girls to finish it! Soooo good :)

    Skip the sugar headache and order a fresh-squeezed margarita to go with your carne asada fries. 1/2 off apps and drinks from 3-7 p.m., plus late night happy hour kicks off at 10 p.m.

    Cool place with some solid tequila drinks. Had their popular margarita on the rocks and purple haze (frozen marg + sangria mix) - both killer. Reeeeally nice bar.
  • Matthew T.
    Carne asada and carnitas are the way to go. Also don't miss the chips and guacamole. Happy hour from 3-7 is half off ALL drinks and apps.

    The queso fundido is so good! Add chorizo if you're a fan- some of the best I've ever had. Great jams, too!

    The steak and shrimp burrito, wet with green sauce, is excellent. Pair with one of their Mexican craft brews.

    Happy Hours and Late Night Happy Hours. Amazing drinks. Try the Purple Haze (Half Sangria, Half Margarita, Fully Delicious) and be sure to order the Guacamole and Chips, enough to feed a small army.

    The only bar I've ever been to where the tab never seems to be as much as it should. Love the prices-especially in the pricey Gaslamp.
