I'd heard about this place from a co-worker so I figured it'd be worth a try. Small menu, friendly staff (Brian) and very trendy! Parking is off street, in the back of the restaurant and it's a great location - right across from the park for a to-go lunch. We had the tacos - best fried chicken ever! Not a... More

The menu we were given did not match the one on the website - and the Short Ribs I wanted to try were not available, but we found food we liked. We had heard about the tacos being very good - and they were. I liked the presentation on a V-shaped holder to keep it vertical. The taco shell was... More

Something has changed. The food is still very good and the chef really took pride in his art HOWEVER the service was less than stellar. When we told them our drinks were wrong they said they were correct. The chef finally came over and said we were correct and gave us new drinks. It took way to long to be... More

Mojito was awesome, definitely not a mix. I loved the jerk chicken fajitas the pepper jelly gave it a unique taste. The barbacoa fajitas were good as well. My Husband really liked the fresh green beans (I ate around them ). Chips and salsa were average, but the green and hot sauce were pretty good. Plenty of food for the... More

After Django sold to a new owner, I had hoped the food would improve. It was never really bad but never really great. Unfortunately, the quality has plummeted. On my first visit I ordered a chicken quesadilla which tasted like it had been immersed in sugar syrup. Almosts inedible! Because I wanted to give them another chance, I went back... More

This used to be a food forward, chef-diven restaurant. At least it looked and felt that way. Now, it seems like the attention to detail just isn't there. A little dirtier. The servers were a little less attentive and friendly (lacking passion). The kitchen was a bit slackerish. But the food was also a disappointment: A carne asada taco that... More

This restaurant has a cool environment with attentive waiters, although it did take a while for our food to come out. The menu is relatively small, and there aren't many options. I had the shrimp taco and cod taco. The cod was alright, but it needed more flavor, and it wasn't served warm. The shrimp taco was amazing. I highly... More

Food was delicious and so was the speciality margarita (kiwi strawberry). Service was best I have had anywhere in along time.

We are long time customers and were a little taken aback by changes made by the new owner. After about 6 months or so, the owner/chef has excelled at keeping what worked and introducing some wonderful changes. Kudos on the new "old" fish tacos! The veggie tacos, while seemingly an odd mix, were quite good with a unique texture and... More

It's difficult not to compare this place to Bakersfield. In terms of design and space, it certainly wins in my opinion. Very cool decor and the bar set up is different in a good way. In terms of food, it is a nudge below Bakersfield. We decided to try each one of the tacos to see how they compare. The... More
