    Everything here is completely made from scratch- they even grind the corn to make masa for their corn tortillas!

    It has been said that too many cooks spoil the broth, but chef Josh Gentry said that Sopa de puerco, sort of a Mexican-influenced pho, was the result of his kitchen’s collaborative environment. Read more

    Intrigued by the many terrible, yet hilarious reviews from friends & the internet, we finally tried it. Those reviews were pretty spot on. Chz dip was good, wish I had enough chips to eat it with. :(

    The patio is comfortable, but one table in the middle gets a wind-tunnel effect from both fans - be careful! Food is great.

    Salsa: ok. Chips: stale, greasy & nasty. Veggie Quesadilla: quite tasty. Mexicoke: yummy, but too warm-- also a glass and ice would have been nice, instead of just the bottle. Waiter: absolute jerk.

    Much better our second time around. shrimp tostada is amazing!The pineapple brings out the sweetness of the corn. An the combo of the creamy sliced avocado with the crunch of tostada, perfection.
