  • Now a bonafide destination, hidden below street level is a new 60's style bungalow meets the hood, with a hand carved tequila bar & margarita menu to boot. Calling it a tacqueria is an injustice. Wow!
  • SUPER cute new neighborhood bar! Good prices. The fish and pulled pork tacos ($7/2) + guac ($4) were *amazing*. Drinks ($9) were good but tell them what kind of tequila. The house stuff was harsh.
  • I can't rave enough: fantastic 'rita's and tacos, super cheap happy hour, fun crowd of mixed races and ages, friendly staff, great music. Very crowded and loud, but in a fun way.
  • Happy Hour is amazing! $4 margs & $2 tacos!! Service is always really good. Friendly & inviting place!
  • Happy hour margs for $4 and $2.50 tacos!
  • The pulled pork and pineapple tacos were really good. The staff was friendly as well. I recommend this place as a great spot to meet up with friends.
  • The best Mexican restaurant in Harlem. M-F Happy hr 4-7pm starring $2 tacos and $4 margaritas. Ladies Night every Wednesday 4pm-close. Brunch specials Sat/Sun including bottomless margaritas, mimosas.
  • I came here on 'Turn up Tuesdays' with DJ Chaka spinning . Great music! The guacamole was fantastic - they made it fresh with no tomatoes to accommodate my sister's allergy. I'll definitely be back!
  • The salsa with the free chips was bangin', and the chicken burrito was tasty and filling.
  • Living across the street, trust that I can say this is a godsend. The happy hour (4-7) is solid & the service is excellent, even when the hood rushes them at 6:53pm. Get the fish tacos; all of them!
  • Great menu choices ... can't go wrong here and if something is wrong, they're attentive enough to change it. The tortilla bowl is my personal favorite. With chicken.
  • Good and tasty food. Portions not too big. Nice atmosphere and kind waiters
  • Tacos are great
  • Nice vibe, good happy hour prices but weird music (rock) being played in the evening...not really the right sound for a Mexican spot...the food was just meh...honestly was not impressed.
  • Especially great happy hour and brunch specials. Great atmosphere and staff is awesome, and welcoming. Great normal restaurant in Harlem.
  • Nice spot and tasty food.
  • Great tacos and drinks but there's been a change in staff so the service isn't that great anymore.
  • Good margaritas. Great burritos!
  • The $3 tacos!!!!
  • Nice vibe, gentle staff and very good options at the happy hour for a very nice price. Successful
