    I had the Buffalo Fried Chicken taco last night. Quite possibly the best taco I've ever had. I need to try the others.

    Ask for extra meat on your taco.....a dollar extra, but worth it!

    Eh, too over priced for beer that really isn't all great. Tacos look tiny & not filling for the price you pay. Save your money, and eat some place healthier for a better value in food

    I tried the steak, pork belly and falafel tacos. Steak was the best. I wanted to try the sampler mini tacos but they were out of small taco shells. :(

    Ghost chili for heat and duck taco for complex flavor, wash it down with a Green Flash.

    If you have the Ghost Chili Pork, you might want to follow it with the Duck. Cool your tongue off with the brie!
