Great food, the Guapo Burger is a real winner :). Guacamole with feta and crispy carrots is an excellent variation of the general gua theme. The tacos are just great and very tasty. Service is fantastic and fast. It's a bit noisy if you are looking for a quiet dinner (I still miss the Hamilton Grill.....)

Host was awesome. My friend’s phone died so she couldn’t immediately show her ID, but he host let her charge her phone and got her back in business in no time. Whole experience was great. We were treated like royalty in there. The food was great and was served quickly.

The food tasted really good but it was sort of expensive. It's about $13-$16 for 2-3 tacos

2 tacos took almost an hour to come out- service and communication wasn't great. The server apologized for how long the food was taking but then mentioned when the table was paying how slow the night was...very off putting.

Service started out great but as soon as it got busy it was a 45 minute wait to get another drink or to pay your bill. Decent drinks but food is overpriced.

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.
