  • Don't sit directly under the outdoor heater... You might spontaneously combust.
  • Check out the AWESOME draft beer selection
  • Ask for Kate she is the F'ing best!!
  • Stellar craft beer list and a perfect happy hour menu to curb that late night hunger.
  • House made chorizo sure is good!
  • If you're not here for brunch on the weekend, you're doing something wrong. Get the scramble with chorizo. Out of this world!
  • Eat all the tacos. Om nom nom. 70 inches of soccer. WIN.
  • Queso fundido with mushroom: try it!
  • Order "Cardini's Creation". NO ONE serves an actual Ceasar Salad any more (especially since it's from Tijuana, NOT Italy), but this is as close as you'll get most places & complements the food well.
  • Steak and chorizo tacos are tasty. Painfully slow service. Cant recommend. Too slow for workday lunch. Did I mention excruciatingly slow service? 30+ mins for 2 tacos.
  • Great little local hang out. Cant go wrong!
  • Excellent patio and their street tacos are delicious and spicy.
  • Get the crispy chicken sandwich!
  • Though kids are allowed, they are not particularly kid friendly.
  • Great Tap list for craft beer lovers
  • Awesome food, drinks and atmosphere.
  • Great late night happy hour!
  • Seriously amazing Tex-Mex inspired cooking. Come in on the weekend for brunch migas. Always-amazing tap list, including what's on deck.
  • The outside deck is great in the summer, and they put Sounders games on the TV. The deck is also great during inclement weather - they have a rain guard and heaters outside.
  • Awesome spicy bar nuts.
