We had the McGuapo and the breakfast taquitos. The food was awesome. Service and staff were really friendly. I really liked the ambiance and vibe of the restaurant.

Went for my girlfriend's birthday. All the staff was so accommodating from the hostess to the manager to the server. They made our night really fun and quite special. We've already made reservations to come again next week.

It’s a Mexican fusion. Limited Mexican menu which was disappointing. We had margaritas, chicken fajitas (only option), beef taco and guacamole. Everything was good, but the beef taco was bland, and the tortillas were cold. Try it at least once to see if you like to go back again. I personally like to try a more authentic Mexican place next time.

The nachos were very small and not of great value. The fries tasted like beef soup and were soggy. Not amazing service. The tacos were very simple also. Wouldn’t come back.

Overall experience was decent. However, the service and the food was terrible. The portions for the nachos was so small for the price. Tacos were mediocre at best. For the price, it was extremely disappointing. The server was more interested in talking to other employees than tending to our table and the surrounding tables.

Terrible “Mexican” food. Guacamole is good, but aside from this, it’s very sub-par. The atmosphere is why people come here and why it’s always busy. Service is ok. They’re reservation policy is strict for some reason, you can’t be over 5 minutes late or they’ll give away your table. I wouldn’t go back.

Reserved a week in advance and got seated in some separate seating area next to storage and stacked chairs. I’d understand if I’d just showed up and that was the only seating available but not cool with a week reservation. Staff didn’t seem to care when we complained. Nice atmosphere in the main area but quite loud considering it’s a sit down venue.
