Excellent Tacos and other entrees in a lively atmosphere on Central Ave. Friendly and helpful wait staff - especially Briana. We went twice during our stay in ABQ and enjoyed both meals. Neighborhood gem.

Service was attentive and based on the clientele you know you are with a bunch of college kids. But the menu was straight forward with tacos and enchiladas and some fish dishes. We got the guacamole, which was good and the thick, crispy chips were plentiful. I ordered four tacos: cod and squash. Both were good and the portions were... More

The food here is great! I love their crab cakes (yes, crab cakes in the desert)! Wonderful tacos and other Mexican food but the service tends to be slow and not very attentive. Very large selections of tequila if you're into that.

Wonderful choice of tacos (plus other foods) and drinks. The tacos are inventive, tasty and attractively served. The margaritas are GREAT, not watered down and made with real lime juice; also when served you are asked if you would like it sweeter or with more lime, etc. Plus it is a good price compared to inferior margaritas at a much...

The tacos and drinks are great however, they are a little pricey. I always get the carne asada tacos which are about 15 dollars for 4 of them. They have a wide selection of margaritas and other drinks - my favorite is the ruby margarita! My only complaint is the service, I've been about 10 times and 7 out of... More

This was the second time I've eaten here. Always get the tacos (so far) as they are very tasty and expertly prepared. The appetizers are also wonderful, as are the deserts. They have a huge selection of tequilas where you can make your own margarita, but I've found the "house margarita" is tasty enough for me. Wait staff is attentive... More

Great atmosphere that is decorated nicely. They have multiple types of tequilas and margaritas that tasted awesome. The tacos were good as well, but avoid the carnitas because the meat was dry and not very tasty. The carne asada taco was bomb though.

Been here 2x. I was hoping the greasy chips and salsa was a mistake the first time.. unfortunately it was not. Came here the second time to find the chips awfully greasy again. They are fried and taste and feel as if they've been soaked in oil. You can get a great drink drink and the food is tasty but... More
