    One of the cooler spots in Murray Hill, this Mexican joint serves up awesome short rib tacos and cocktails in a fun atmosphere. The tequila list is extensive, so do a tequila flight to sample a few.

    I honestly love this place! The food here is the bomb if a little on the pricier side (speaking specifically for lunch menu). Short rib tacos are fab! Just need more patrons here; it's a stylish spot!

    good food selection and great food portions, yum, nice funky lighting and decent decor. The voodoo child drink is pretty good and a great tequila selection ofcourse!

    While scoping out the list of 120+ tequilas & mezcals, order the the reposado-based, maple syrup & pressed pineappled "Voodoo Child", which surprisingly doesn't involve Hendrick's. Read more

    Try the Leyenda cocktail and mahi mahi tacos. Spicy cucumber margarita tastes like a green juice mixed with alcohol.

    Hibiscus-infused tequila, where have you been all our lives? The vibe here combined with a sexy interior will make you forget you're not in SoHo anymore.

    Christa! The best bartender I've had In NYC tip her properly because she'll make sure you're stumbling out of the bar.

    Cannot go wrong with the Spicy Cucumber Margarita! The Evil Michelada is delicioso tambien! Food is in small portions! Snack attack, not dinner status...

    The taco bar options are vast, but we prefer the surf to the turf here... and don't do the salt and lemon thing. You're beyond that. Read more

    I suggest coming here for drinks vs food. The menu is beautifully integrated but so far poorly executed... Planning on revenge and hoping to try at least another 4 dishes out & prove me wrong

    This place was over priced for some poor attempt at gourmet tacos. How can you charge 12$ for two mini tacos ?!??? That was an entree. That was just the food. Wait till you get a drink! Gross.

    I'd only come for the happy hour drinks....Which are stronger-than-average. I wouldn't eat here or pay for their expensive food. I'd rather just go to BBQ's for that, which is what I did!
