The casual atmosphere, fun music, friendly service and DELICIOUS food are all the reasons I continue to return. And I generally don't even like Mexican food! Great place for a date or just with friends. Highly recommend!

Very nice decor and quite busy on a Friday night. Service was moderate and the waitress was hospitable. Although the food was okay it wasn't anything special, probably won't return.

I was staying in a hotel in the downtown area and after walking around for a bit we came across this taqueria. The place was super busy, which was a good sign. Upon entering, the ordering is very confusing. When you go into a restaurant you have an expectation to be seated and then you order your meal. However, when... More

I came here with a friend after seeing it was voted on of the best Mexican restaurants. It's not a real sit down restaurant. You order at the counter and they bring it to you. I was so impressed. We started off with guacamole which was to do for. We got two types of tacos which were so tasty. We... More

The food I had here was tasty. Particularly the guac and chips (homemade tortilla chips) and the Al Pastor tacos (spicy but really good). The Carne Deshebrada (braised beef) tacos were a little bland for my liking but my wife loved them. The only issue for me was the portions for the price. $50 got us 8 tacos (palm sized),... More

Definitely a busy, noisy and hopping place, but food does not really have Mexican flavours. Had hoped to have a platter with 4 different tacos for comparison, but not possible. The beer, Negra Modelo was Mexican and cold , however it was not served with a lime wedge and a glass was not offered . Since I have lived in... More

I eat here every time I come to Edmonton and I've never had a bad meal. Service is quick & friendly. They ask if you've ever been before, and, if not, they explain how it works, without being condescending. The food is excellent. I can't speak to its authenticity, but it's tasty, just spicy enough, and you get lots for... More

I had passed by this restaurant a few times and decided to finally give it a try tonight. I should have done that before! Food is fresh and tasty. Even more, the service is nice and helpful to make a decision on what to eat. I had the fish tacos with a local beer. Highly recommend a visit.

You order at the counter and then find a seat. Tacos come in groups of 4 - and you can NOT mix and match. Each is quite small, so if you are hungry, you will run up a bill. The tacos come fast, and they are tasty, but MESSY. Don't come here in a suit expecting to go back to... More

The tacos were good, but the overcrowded atmosphere, plus very expensive tacos, make this place not worthy of recommendating it.
