Enjoyed the atmosphere and the service was great. We enjoyed the queso and salsa trio with our brunch. The breakfast nachos were definitely enough to share. Quick walk from downtown hotels.

A great place to drink margaritas and enjoy some fab taco combinations. The outdoor decks are a good way to enjoy downtown buffalo.

Not bad at all. I would go back. Drinks are good. Service is persistent. Tacos are decent. Portions are more tapas size, so be mindful when ordering.

Stopped by their sunny patio for some margaritas and tacos. Food was authentic and fresh, beer was cold and the Margarita's were perfect. Friendly staff too. The upper outdoor patio looked like it would be good at night.
