Lots of tastes and creativity here. The lamb tacos, the crispy pork tacos, the guac with chipirones, the queso...all great starters. The duck as an entree is really good, as is the beef.

Visually, a dive. Basement setting. Dimly lit. Didn't smell great. It was a leap of faith to sit down and order. But boy were we glad we did. This is not Tex Mex. And I'm not sure if it is authentic Mexican. But the flavors...More
