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

    Pretty decent craft beer selection here

    Jeremy Krantz · September 9, 2014
  • Jake S.

    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.

    Jake Smith · September 6, 2014
  • Jeremy K.

    Go check out their roof deck! It's their big selling point

    Jeremy Krantz · August 18, 2014

    Fish tacos

    Mohammed AlZarooni · August 15, 2014
  • Matthew S.

    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.

    Turned down fifty people from a wedding for no apparent reason...

    The antelope tacos are delicious.

    Robyn Bahr · September 26, 2013
  • Jed D.

    $12.95 for a burger and they want another $1.75 for cheese. No thank you

    The fish tacos are absolutely amazing - but watch out, the peppers are spicy! Definitely my fave dish.

    Cell signal is terrible. Use the free wi-fi.

    Keep your eyes open. Got a little tipsy for a second, came back to the land of the living and the place was filled with bros in button downs. Huge sausage fest.

    Buffalo burger is great, have them but the ketchup and mustard on the side or the put on too much

    Brian Lowy · July 13, 2011
  • Peter M.

    DO NOT try the Spicy Blood Orange Margarita with the roof bartenders. It wins my award for "worst mixed drink ever". You should get it just to see how awful it is, actually.

    Peter Marreck · July 7, 2011
  • Madison G.

    Best chips around.

    Madison Gouzie · July 5, 2011

    The kitchen is open until 1am (at least on weekends). Hit this place up for late night eats.

    This dj is terrible. He thinks he is girltalk but is mashing terrible songs. Don't come here if you want to party!

    Don't smoke in bed

    Brian Davis · November 14, 2010
  • Jen H.

    Chicken Quesadillas are amazing and the buffalo meat burger is well worth trying!

    Jen H · October 8, 2010
  • Sean I.

    The hot sauce with the shrimp is wayyy too hot then I was sick for over 2 days from the Nachos. Will not be eating here again.

    Sean Ingles · September 27, 2010
  • Caesar G.

    I can't help to order the tuna when I'm the Rattlesnake. It is the best tuna I ever had. No joke!

    Caesar Grubel · August 30, 2010

    Phenom tex mex american fusion. Love the scene at lunch with or without a stellar cocktail from the extensive menu

    The food here is *much* better than it used to be. Try the cornbread app.

    Despite its look, Nachos Mana is out of this world!!

    Craig Tarr · April 22, 2010

    Order the Snake Punch, but be careful it could bite you if you have too many, and you wont see it coming!

    Beth · April 13, 2010
  • Christina K.

    They seem to have redone their menu for the better. You HAVE to get the chicken tacos. It is a MUST.

    Christina Kelleher · March 1, 2010
  • Nicholas P.

    It is a bar first, then a restaurant. Take that for what it is!

    Nicholas Porter · February 6, 2010

    CORNBREAD. Also, the steak quesadilla on naan bread is superb.
