I’ve been dining here for years and it’s still my number one place for fine Mexican dining. Pros: The food, the service, and definitely the cocktails. Cons: The small space. I wish they would expand. It would limit the sometimes horrible wait times, long lines.

Just had an outstanding meal. Cocktails are excellent, music is excellent. Go with a crowd, get a variety of tacos and share. Reservations for large parties only, otherwise plan to wait in line but it's worth it.

If you mean does it have a kids menu, the answer is no, so if your kids will eat the regular adult menu items, then it IS kid friendly.
