  • As a connoisseur of Tex Mex, I approve for comfort Mexican food. Its sacrilegious to not start with guac and seven dips. Pastrami tacos and short rib make your own tacos are. Layer on a few margs!

  • Crab nachos were great!
  • NY Mag likes the hashbrown tacos
  • The fish tacos are amazing!
  • Loved the spicy cucumber drink and the tacos. Overpriced for what you get.
  • Haven't been here but based on the menu, this place isn't a one $ place by any means.
  • Dishes to try include falafel tacos with hummus, Hokkaido sea urchin on toast, pastrami tacos with mustard seed salsa, and tempura fish with lime mayo. Theres guacamole and the seven salsas, too.
  • Overpriced. Small dishes. Naggy service.
