    Fish tacos were a little too rustic for me with a pan fried piece of fish but the cauliflower tacos looked and tasted delicious! Virgin coconut margaritas and regular margaritas were super tasty!

    Waitress was super rude and short with us, literally cutting us off if she thought we were taking too long. And no, it wasn’t that busy. And when my two year old fell and hit his head on our way out the door no one checked on us and no one said anything to the woman who loudly scolded us for bringing a well-behaved child into a casual Mexican restaurant.

    Tacos!! Margs!! And tequila!! My girlfriends and I had a fantastic time enjoying the vibrant flavours and festive ambiance. My favorite taco IS the baja shrimp, and fav drink is the coconut chilli margarita. Our server, J was great, always polite, and kept our drinks up! Service was fast and everything came out perfect. It’s the perfect spot for anyone craving a taste of Mexico and a good time with your friends or family. Come out to try this fantastic restaurant with amazing decor that you will not find anywhere else in this city.

    Normally everything is great! This time was great too mind you, the server was absolutely amazing and the food was good. The only issue was the music was way too loud. hey finally turned it down an hour in but only for one song and then cranked it again. I don't like going out to sit and pay for food in a place where I have to yell just to be heard. And my dad has hearing aids and he couldn't hear anything at all because of it. But everything else was great. It's easily one of Lethbridge's best places to go.

    Went for happy hour to have their margaritas and tacos, however, by the time you add on $3 for cheese, $.50 for pico de gallo, $.50 for sour cream, I wouldn’t say it was value. The margaritas were a small glass and pack to the rim with ice and was gone in about four sips. On a positive note, the server was very pleasant and did allow us to put an additional happy hour drink through at 5:01 and that was appreciated!

    The food, for a Mexican restaurant, was bland. The pork was dry and the shredded cheese tasted stale and was dry to the touch. The prices are a little steep for what you get. It felt more like a bar that decided to start serving food than a restaurant with a bar inside of it.

    The drinks we uncharacteristically small as margaritas go. The queso was simply melted cheese rather than a sauce. Very different from the traditional Mexican restaurant style that I am accustomed to.

    Food was very fresh with great taste. There are lots of choices with typical tacos, burritos, fajitas, etc but then you have a lot of different choices for filling/ including chicken pork, beef, fish, vegetarian. The salsa and guacamole are very flavourful. Very relaxing atmosphere. Definitely coming back.

    I ordered the Avocado Chicken Wrap, but decided to change it to a bowl instead of a Wrap. When I got my bowl, there was no chicken. The server accidentally ordered the avocado salad. So instead of bringing me what I ordered they gave me 2 strips of chicken on the side (which I had to wait 10-15mins for) and then still charged me full price for the meal. No discount for the mix up. I also ordered a drink and the server took it off the table before it was finished. This was my second and will be my last visit to this restaurant. I was extremely disappointed with the service.
