The salsa and guacamole were phenomenal! Andrei our waiter was very accommodating and helpful as none of us had been to the restaurant before! Great experience-family style service.

Isalita really hit the spot for lunch today. We stopped here based on the availability of gluten free options and were not disappointed. Started off with tortilla chips and a selection of dips/salsa and then everyone in our party had a different kind of taco,...More

This little restaurant is always crowded because the food and sangrias are so delicious. If you need quiet dining, you shouldn't eat here. Always check the bar for an open seat at the bar rather than wait the usual hour.

Great Mexican in the Midwest? Who would've thought? In all my travels, it is the one type of food I stay away from given my So CA roots. But, I call a spade a spade when I get it. This place is fantastic. The chips...More

This place was packed , but we found the food kind of underwhelming. Too sweet, not enough kick. I guess people go for the drinks and the atmosphere----

My daughter and I were visiting and stopped by for dinner. We both had excellent entrees. I particularly enjoyed the fish taco. Portions were small, so we could have ordered more. A fun and funky place for dinner. Glad we called ahead to get a...More
