    A former Delta pilot who missed the food from his old Atlanta to Baja route opened this place. Get a lobster taco. -Eli Kirshtein, Top Chef

    The three classics they offer— house, Texas, and Cadillac— are strong and yummy! Food here is great as well, make sure you sit down for dinner instead of just drinking at the bar. [Eater 38 Member]

    Best thing about the long wait is the margarita you can drink, or two!

    Go early unless of you have plenty of time to wait. I recommend the carne asada tacos and the margaritas...two and I'm toast.

    Sit on the main level. Established crowd & atmosphere. Not my fave but everyone seems to love this place. Just be prepared to wait on a weekend night, and don't come if you're claustrophobic.
