    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 :)

    Try the baked chocolate pudding with candied pecans caramel and dulce de leche gelato, and the apple empanadas with tangy lemon sorbet. Read more

    Great environment! The guacamole is delicious. I had the chicken tacos and they were great. The chocolate cake for dessert is pretty amazing! Service was a little slow, but I will visit again.

    Awesome margaritas! Had the carne asada tacos and slow cooked chicken enchiladas which were both amazing. Guac here was not impressive though, try the ceviche verde!!

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

    Carnitas tacos = excellent; carne asada = very good; camarones al pastor = good but under seasoned. House made habanero sauce great on the carnitas!!!

    Very loud spot but makes for a fun evening. Any of the tacos are delicious and the Jicama Y Fruta was pleasantly filling and had tons of flavor.

    try to sit towards the back (where it's quieter). everything i've sampled off the menu was great, but the jicama salad is particular is a must order.

    Tacos are bomb. Margs are awesome. Some of the larger plates are good too. Not huge portions but great flavor. Fun date spot.

    The margaritas and the guacamole are amazing - this place is fun for groups, but definitely plan ahead as it gets busy fast!

    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

    Get the duck tacos (Pato a la placha), rancherias enchiladas, followed by the flourless budin for dessert. Skip the churros.

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

    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!

    Chilaquiles, seafood and more are served up with terrific margaritas and a bar-and-grill-meets-Mexico interior. Read more

    Guac is _not fresh_!! Everyone orders it and loves it but you can get the avocado mix at Costco. Salsa doesn't have much flavor either

    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.

    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.
