  • A modern Mexican restaurant and tequila bar created by James Beard Award-winning Iron Chef Jose Garces.
  • A modern Mexican restaurant with a margarita bar. Focusing on Mexican street food. Opened by Iron Chef Jose Garces
  • The corn (esquites) was delicious. Flourless chocolate cake with mousse, spicy candid walnuts and coffee ice cream is a must have. However, the beef tongue tacos were too salty (the sauce).
  • Get the Esquites! Sweet corn (off the cob) with Queso fresco & chipotle mayo. Scoop it on some chips.
  • 110 tequila brands? My my. We're going to be here awhile.
  • The almasrosa 11 month respasado is almonds smoothness
  • Pretty good happy hour and great service!
  • Located in The Saguaro, this small, casual bar, is the go-to place in Palm Springs for a quick meal of tacos and margaritas.
  • Queso fundido oaxaqueo
  • The Taco Tuesday/Thursdays are great. Fish taco especially. Wl Jefe burger is also good, and dont miss the margaritas!
  • Taste just as great as the elote bought from the streets...just in a glass. Delicious!
  • This cheese on this dish is good but the duck barbacoa underneath is what makes this dish awesome.
  • I'm usually not the biggest watermelon fan but this sopa makes great use of watermelon. The flavor goes well with the dungeness crab meat.
  • The charred pineapple margarita is amazing. Very refreshing.
  • The tacos were ok. It was the service, they were so slow, took 45minutes to get 2orders of tacos. Very understaffed.
  • Avoid the guacamole. Super under seasoned. Basically just mashed avocado and a sprinkle of cheese. No tomatoes or spice.
  • I had better carne asada tacos on the back of trucks. Too expensive for 3 little guys. The waitress was very friendly and my boyfriend said the Asada tacos were great. I gave my tacos to him.
  • I got an omelette with tomato, spinach and bacon with a side of wheat toast. It was awesome. My husband got the smoke salmon platter and he said it was fantastic. The coffee was strong and tasty.
  • Of all the tacos, the lengua tacos are the winner.
  • Check out Taco Tuesdays and their great Happy Hours
