Service was good. Some of our meals were good; some not. Baja tacos and chicken tacs were very good. Cajun chicken was blah and very very thin. Chili rellenos was one pepper stuffed with some cheese but mostly sour cream. Nice presentation.

The best tacos we had in Mexico over 2 weeks in Mexico City and out here in Puerto Escondido, simple amazing! Frozen Margaritas weren't the best, but the tacos more than made up for it!
