    Great for those grasping at youth and not afraid of a little noise. They serve up dressy Mexican fare and over 60 tequilas and mescals. - Inspector

    Don't bother looking at the menu - get the sea scallop tacos and you'll thank me later! Also - make sure to ask for chips & salsa!

    Best chilaquiles you will find in the bay area! Also, the Margaritas are awesome and they have one of the most extensive list of Tequilas we’ve seen!

    Dinner with a big group. Reserve a month ahead and ask for the big raised table in the middle. Cool atmosphere and you can observe the whole place.

    I adore the crisp chicken tacos ($13) with cascabel chile mole, queso and refried beans. They're stuffed in soft tortillas and topped with a finely shredded Little Gem lettuce. Read more

    Great place for three people. The plates typically come out with 3 items. Carnitas are heavenly bits of juicy and lightly crisped pleasure.

    Carnitas were very good but the carne asada tacos and guacamole were only ok and not worth their cost. Also it's very loud and hard to hear the person next you you.

    A great place to come to if you wanna have fun & be loud. And do it while eating the incredible queso fundido. Oh and carry on thru dessert-anything that involves chocolate. They use the good stuff.
