    It's a small menu but everything is done right. Antelope tacos are great. Roofdeck in the summer.

    If you order the chips and salsa app, skip the $5 guacamole addition, it is not worth it. The Carne Asada tacos are light and tasty.

    The 3 bartenders on the rooftop seem unable to get the drinks out to the wait staff; seems they're concentrating on patrons at the bar. Bit rubs.
