Stopped in for a quick dinner on a Sunday evening--first time here. This place is a winner, excellent food, served quickly, well done, super-fresh, and with great staff. The chips are light and fresh, and the salsa is made in-house, as is their spicier green sauce, available on reqeust. We had the freshly made guac, very good. My partner had... More

Great "Tex Mex" is very hard to find this Far East and North (we've looked). This was a great find. Wonderful (authentic) TexMex, delightful staff and owner. We will return.

Had the shrimp & mahi fajitas one night for supper... It was so good I came back the next day for lunch (steak burrito) which was even better! I was probably a bit biased as my server Marlena was muy bien. Make sure to try their home made green hot sauce... So so good two thumbs way up!

We came for lunch, and was promptly greeted by the waitstaff who was engaging and helpful. There is no specific lunch menu, however, it was easy to find things to select from. The corn chips are crisp and flavorful and the salsa was fresh and flavorful. We had a lamb fajitas with flour tortillas- prepared with sliced onions and peppers,... More

this is becoming one of our regular happy hour spots: good margaritas, great chicken quesadillas, great nachos which are a meal all by themselves, delicious chicken tortilla soup. Daily specials are worth a look, I recently tried an appetizer of french fries smothered in cheese, beef, guacamole, sour cream and chopped green onions....yummy! Ask for the salsa verde with everything,... More

Went with friends and ate the Dos Amigos Chicken Sandwich. Normally I would not eat a sandwich at a Mexican restaurant, but a friend highly recommended it. Grilled chicken, fried egg, special sauce, jalapeños, fries. $11. Perfect with their margarita on the rocks. My new go-to cheap eats place.

I give this relatively tiny place props for not 100% toeing the Tex-Mex line- there were some surprises along the way. My partners Mahi dinner was almsot as ifit came from an American seafood house- properly grilled with broccoli and white rice, and a simple salad. My Tacos Al Carbon were 100% on target, and the black beans and Pico... More

We've stopped in here a few times. Mainly after work. The margaritas are good, not watered down. The food was good. The service was fine. Nothing really stood out, but I remember enjoying everything we had. Generally speaking, I only remember something when it knocks my socks off or if it's terrible. I just remember enjoying myself and then moving... More

I have been there a few times as it is across from the Braddock st train station and like the place a lot. I especially like the enchiladas but other members of my family have had fish tacos or black bean soup and liked what they ordered. It is a cozy neighborhood eatery. Very friendly with a nice bar also.... More
