Foursquare Tips

  • Don't waste your time with the regular size Margarita, just get the jumbo size and start the night right.
  • I don't know how you would end up here and not try the chips and salsa, but they are seriously orgasmic. I love them.
  • Sunny afternoon, outdoor seating in the shade, steak tacos, and Tecate: Check, check, check, and check!
  • Best service and Mexican in the city, love this place!
  • The tilapia is delish, as are the chips and salsa. Great gem of a place.

  • The margaritas are VERY strong, which is nice. We always get tacos a la carte, but the sincronizadas are a good entreee. Don't fill up on chips/salsa because food is great.

  • Chips and salsa = best part of our meals
