    Tacos are always my first choice. They also list great offers on TangoTab, who donates a meal every time you use them. And, it's free. http://apps.tangotab.com

    A lot of comments about bad food and service. I didn't encounter either. Margarita sampler was awesome and the Lopez sampler was good bar food.

    Leave immediately. Food is horrible. Service is worse. Way overpriced. It's not just after opening, it's ever day (like last night). I should have trusted urbanspoon and foursquare tips!!

    Have to disagree with Michael and chalk it up to early days after opening. We found it to be very good food and a great staff. It was a bit pricy, but overall worth it.
