    They don't have a liquor license, so their margaritas are made with wine.

    I don't get the big deal here. It's over crowded, the wait is ridiculous and the food is Americanized mexican food. Skip this place and try Daniels Tacos or Rocio's on Vineland instead, authentic 👌

    I really don't understand the hype. The food is too salty, the beans taste like they're from a can, the rice is bland and the service is mediocre.

    Make sure to fill up your empty bean dip dish with the awesome avocado salsa that they have in their salsa bar. Be careful, it looks just like the jalapeño salsa!!

    they use a different alcohol in their margaritas so it isn't actual tequila because of the lack of liquor license. so you're pretty much stuck w/ beer. the noho location has alcohol though!

    Don't have Aricela for a waitress. It was 22 minutes before we even got drinks and they were wrong. A table that arrived after us finished eating before we even ordered. It's never been this bad.
