  • Ask for the vegan menu
  • Food was good, not great. Chicken fajitas cooked well with seasoning. Sodas were waaaay under carbonated. So basically syrup. PLUS - they don't honor their foursquare special after you check-in!
  • Be sure to try the pomegranate margaritas!
  • This is a great place for a date and the vegan offerings are awesome. There's a spicy vegan ice cream dessert, even.
  • Great margaritas. They don't work with foursquare anymore, so no special...
  • The food was good, but please note that they are NOT offering the foursquare free dessert special, despite it being listed and offered. Unfortunate practice on the restaurant's part.
  • $4 Mojitos (half price) on Mondays!
  • Vegan stuff was good but they did not honor the foursquare special, which was kind of disappointing.
  • I like this place! Nice combination of contemporary presentation and traditional flavor. Well done!
  • Fantastic service and wonderful food!
  • Great garden patio out back. Also great pairings of fish and fruit entrees. Nice atmosphere.
  • Margaritas, fajitas, enchiladas and steak tacos are all excellent.
  • I love the mole!!
  • Good vegetarian options. Better than many Mexican restaurants in the area.
  • Cute place to dine in. Good food and great margaritas.
  • Ugh, not good. And expensive.
  • Al Pastor Enchiladas are ridiculously good. Some of the best Mexican I've had in Chicago
  • Make sure to order the appetizer guacamole and not the side order unless you want this tiny size.
  • They have a beautiful outdoor patio during the summer.
  • Enchiladas are pretty standard. The Ceviche starter was not very good and came out after the entrees. The margaritas are good though.
