    The shrimp tacos and avocado fries were amazing! Great margaritas and friendly service. Plus, there's a cute back patio where you can sit to eat. Definitely coming back!

    One of my favorite restaurants in Astoria. Chilaquiles for brunch and date cake for dessert.

    This place has a really cool setting. The food was absolutely delicious, but the serving sizes were a bit small. The guacamole was extra delicious and you have to try one of their margaritas.

    Always get the salsa trio and guacamole. Always. Spicy has huge jalapeño chunks in the guac and makes awkward to eat.

    Very salty, overpriced "Mexican " like food. Tacos were salty and scarce. Shredded pork was average. Both had one overpowering margarita. The $$$ bill came and was still hungry after $50 each!

    Great, prompt service. Beautiful little garden out back. Everyone says go for the tacos, but one of the most amazing brunch deals around - only $10 for a drink and solid meal.

    From the same team that runs Vesta they know how to make good food. The short rib tacos are to die for. And definitely go for the little devil for dessert it blows the baby Jesus cake from Vesta away.
