Foursquare Tips

  • Enchilada with a Fried Egg was awesome, so was the Pozole.
  • The brisket taco was amazing - sip on the Sixth Stairstep with it.
  • Get the chile relleno. Crunchy, with wonder cheese filling and tangy sauce. Not at all greasy.
  • Come for lunch on a Sunday. Have the pozole and 'Back to Life Cocktail" are quality! Good beers too. Nothing wrong with Al Green and Isaac Hayes on the turntables either.
  • Spicy brisket tacos, great enchiladas. Nice beer list
  • For breakfast, try the burnt ends hash. Dinner menu is always evolving but if they have charred octopus, give it a go. Cocktails are also a staple, including the bloody Maria.
  • Fried Chicken, toast, and the nitro brewed coffee
