    We love Mexican food and this is, by far, the best we've had! The atmosphere is very hip and just a great space for drinks and dinner. Service was wonderful and made the experience so positive we'll be back again, and soon. We highly recommend El Tres!

    Great drinks, queso, chips and guacamole! Barbaco tacos were a bit salty; but, burritos, chimi and Diabolo tacos were excellent!! Would definitely recommend and return!

    Nick is amazing! From the moment I arrived and throughout the dining experience, he made me and my guests feel at home. His charm and wit made us smile and feel special. The food and ambiance were superb as well but customer service superseded.
