I tried the sampler. Shredded beef taco, chicken enchilada and a beef and bean burrito. All three were delicious as well as the margaritas! Service was very good and friendly and fairly priced. I would definitely eat there again.

Loved the food and now the new upstairs bar! What a great place to hang out with a cervaza or margarita while you wait for your table. Favorites include fajita burrito and tacos. Wait staff is friendly and the atmosphere is fun.
