    Duck tacos are fantastic as is the ceviche. Environment is noisy but lots of fun. Nice balance of trendy and comfortable. Definitely recommend!

    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.

    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

    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.

    Be adventurous. Get the goat tacos and the duck tacos - they are incredibly flavorful. Also, the desserts here are top notch. The bread pudding or churros that you dip in warm mexican hot chocolate :)
