  • Three words: Blood Orange Margarita.
  • Just like everyone says, The Blood Orange Margarita is where it's at!
  • The salmon tacos are outta sight!
  • Don't get the moobuzz chardonay! Tasted like the name!
  • Huge portions + awesome margs
  • Very tasty mexican food. The Burritos were great. The staff was friendly.
  • Food good, but noise is deafening
  • Food was just ok- Dont go out of your way. Most disappointing: guac- the Rick Bayless mix blows doors off of this very basic guacamole. They are closed on Tuesday.
  • Blood orange margarita. Chicken mole enchilada. Make a reservation or expect to wait on Friday night.
  • Call ahead for seats. Tacos al carbon. Kids salsa for the little ones and those kids nachos son gigantes.
  • Food was just alright - but the wine selection was worth it (as well as the mixed drinks)
  • The chicken tamale is REALLY good - tastes homemade. Cimarron blanco margaritas are also decent.
  • This place is amazing, a local favorite, been here for years and is still packed, standing room only on a Friday night.
  • Nice craft beer menu and spicy Mexican food. I had the fajitas which were delicious but the portions were huge!
  • Awesome Mexican restaurant in Pacific Grove! Lively at 3:30pm :)
  • If you're hungry the Mission District burrito will hit the spot.
  • Great place! Definitely recommend! I had the sword fish tacos (the special) and the boys had chicken enchiladas. Everything is fresh and tasted amazing.
  • Best homemade taco shells. Love the pitcher of Margaritas too
  • It was good by all means, but didn't live up to the hype
  • It's been years since I've been back and even though they have no happy hour drinks their margaritas were tasty. Had the grilled mahi mahi tacos for dinner and they were so fresh and delicious!
