Was visiting Tampa this past weekend great first trip! They have a DJ playing at the hostess stand which is pretty cool. Awesome atmosphere to meet friends for a drink, apps or food in the SOHO area. Trendy Mexican is the best way to describe it and had a fantastic server for a party of 10. I would recommend a... More

Great location if you dob't want a wait. BTW, the bowls are to die for. I particularly enjoyed the Fajita bowl with Jasmine rice. Filling and tasty!!! Recommend this place for business luncheons.

Nice upbeat Mexican restaurant, economical, great service. Food taste good. We ordered Trio sauce ( salsa, guacamole, and melting cheese) appetizer, it was a very good choice. I ordered Street Trio tacos (Gigante chicken, Mahi Mahi, Carne Enchilada) soft tacos. My wife ordered chicken fajitas, you can never go wrong with that.

I should begin by saying I am not a huge fan of Mexican food. So I haven't eaten in a very many Mexican restaurants. That being said, I thoroughly enjoyed my meal at Green Lemon. We all started with a nacho appetizer that was so good we ordered extra chips to scrape up the cheese on the plate. Then I... More

Very hip place in heart of Hyde Park Tampa near Hugo's. Menu has variety of meat and seafood either in tacos or bowls. My husband liked his Mexican shredded pork bowl with jasmine rice. I had two tacos in hard shells fried fish and grilled chicken. Interesting accoutrements like picked onion and avocado. We finished it with ice cream, bananas... More

Courtney was our server and we had a great meal with terrific margaritas. Fun lively atmosphere with excellent selection of fresh healthy choices. I had a jasmine rice bowl with mahi and table-side guacamole, mango margarita. yUM. Complimentary dessert for first timers too.

It's a great place to eat here to have good Mexican food. It's a very hip place to be. Lots of people - nice people. We were only visiting , my sister who is from this area introduced me and my hubby to this place. Glad we tried it. Will definitely come back when we visit my sister again.

I have to admit I was very surprised! I had not been here in a long time and the first trip wasn't good. Imagine my shock today when I got some amazing tacos for Taco Tuesday! The carnitas was delicious. My only negative was there was already a 40 minute wait by 5:30.

Great place for Mexican food and a lot more different selections. Drinks are wonderful. Atmosphere is great and the food is delicious. I go for their Mexican cuisine because their tacos are the BEST.
