Inventive burritos, tacos & quesadillas are the forte of this counter-serve spot with a salsa bar.- Google
"I love their salsa bar, quesadillas, and horchatas."
"The mayan cochinita pibil tacos are AMAZING."

The salsa bar was fun. It was nice to try a few different flavors. My daughter who doesn't like spice really enjoyed the peanut salsa. The tomatillo was exceptional as well. I did not think the guacamole was well executed. There were onions, tomatos, pineapple and cilantro but it was more pico-ish than guacamole-like. And where was the avocado? For $3.95 the portion was relatively small. I would definitely pass on this in the future. For main courses. we had the mole chicken quesa and an assortment of tacos. The mole was exceptional and wasn't at all bitter. The quesa itself was flaky, crisp and delicious. If you are a mole fan, this is a must try. For tacos, we had the Baja shrimp, show cooked pork and carne asada. The shrimp was cooked perfectly and the breading light an didn't overwhelm the flavors. I loved the pork which was moist, flavorful and satisfying. The carne asada was very good though pretty typical street taco fare. I will definitely dine here again. The setting matched the food... casual, comfortable but not your typical Mexican fare. It's definitely a step above.

We weren't able to eat here because of the simple fact that they have terrible consumer service. Yes the place was full of people, as we were the last to be seated, standing with my 6 year old and my wife for a good 10min. They decided to sit 2 woman, that had clearly had barley walked in.. So we walked out.

Really good place to eat. If you are in the mood for tacos, give it a try. We got a "3 street taco" plate and a "2 taco" plate with an Orchata for $23. The rice and beans were really good. I got the carne asada, pollo asada, and el pastor street tacos, all of them were super good. The wife got 2 shrimp tacos, which were ok. The cabbage and creamy sauce was good but the crispy shrimp was a little soggy. I would give the food 4.5 out of 5. As the other reviews state, the orchata is amazing. $3.99 for a big cup, worth every penny. Does have pecans, strawberry, and cantaloupe. Sounds weird but tastes great! Give the place a try, we really liked it.

Lots of salsas & meat options but nothing stood out to make me go back. Too pricey when you got better tastes close by

parking is terrible to start. walk in and its really cramped. today it happened to be full. not even any real area to wait, stand. rice and beans which should be staple food are what I judge a lot on was bland. rice was ok, and the beans were runny. salsa's could be noted by level of hot. that peanut one that was recommended was HOT! anyhow on to next item. the tortillas should be fresh made. perhaps they were fresh made out of a bag. because the place was so cramped I opted to just order takeout which by the time I was home was warm. got the carne asada, chicken mole, al pastor taco platter. I imagine fresh off the grill these might've been pretty good. unsure if i'll return.

Fantastic tacos and fantastic margaritas! Very authentic and a great happy hour- $3 margaritas. Definitely the best Mexican I've had since moving here 16 months ago.

Salsa bar was perfect, and the margarita chilantro had a great kick.
