What a great dinner here! It gets busy quickly so get here early. I would suggest two small plates per person. Everything we had was fabulous. Also the house margaritas are very good and genuine-not the lime green ones served at some places. The queso with just fried chips=amazing. We also had the chicken chicharron-probably the favorite dish. Great chicken and not a small portion! We had barrel smoked pork tacos (excellent) and huitlacoche quesadillas. Honestly, I was so full I did not try the quesadillas! Fun, noisy, vibrant place. Would definitely recommend! Pace yourself! Great service too!
I truly wish I could remember the young lady that waited on my friends and I because she was incredible. Since we had never been there before she explained everything on the menu (that wasn't obvious) and offered the suggestion of all ordering different sized dishes and sharing! It was incredible! Huge fan of the tamales, and the dish with fries and cheese (can't remember what it was called). Also the margarita was yummy as always.
I reserved a private room for a dinner for a bachelorette party, and our experience was perfect! Our waiter went above and beyond to make sure that everyone got exactly what they wanted, and the service could not be beat. They were patient and accommodating the whole time, and everything was accurate and as expected. As for the food - delicious! Every bite I tried was incredible, and there were many options no matter what your dietary restrictions. Be sure to try the guacamole, cauliflower tacos, loaded fries, and house margarita. You won't be disappointed.
