    Drinks, dinner and dessert were all fantastic! I don’t think you can make a wrong decision when choosing from any of their menu items. We sat out on the rooftop and Ernesto provided great service. Although, if you plan to order the Capirotada for dessert, (which I highly recommend) get a table inside for the best presentation!

    Our food and margaritas were delicious. The servers were attentive and nice. An added bonus, the mariachi band played Ring of Fire to us. We had a great time.

    My son enjoyed his birthday lunch there. I believe our waiter/ cameraro was Ernesto. He was amazing when helping our party of people who was unfamiliar with the menu. Service was prompt and pleasant. And the food was excellent.

    This was our first time here but definitely won’t be the last. We had the carnitas which were AMAZING, the spicy chicken enchiladas and the al pastor tacos along with the queso with chorizo. Everything was exceptional and our server, Maria, was outstanding!

    Amazing atmosphere, delicious food owner/manager kept walking around checking on the tables. My one true complaint is that there is not a changing table in the bathroom. So I had to change my son on the floor. Thankfully my diaper bag came with a thin changing mat. I love the presentation of the food, drinks, and even the check. I highly recommend their old fashion. It's made with smokey flavored tequila it was absolutely delicious. I'll eat there again one day. It's just a little too pricey.

    From the moment we entered the restaurant, to receiving our check, we felt welcomed into a family member’s home. The wait staff was superb, the food was beyond our expectations and to top it off the mariachi band was fabulous. If you visit Louisville make this restaurant one not to miss.
