  • Amazing food! Tamales, tacos, everything is out of this world.
  • There isn't an ordinary dish on the menu. The chicken tacos are a revelation and their BYOB license takes this ship into hyperspace.
  • I would recommend the duck confit tamale smothered in the plum mole sauce. Yum. Guac was surprisingly good too.
  • Just opened! Just as good as the foodtruck! Great service & BYOB
  • The Complicate tamales have amazing mole on top.
  • The only thing good is the cucumber water and the service.
  • These aren't the typical Tamales you can find in Mexico which are green sauce, mole, and red sauce. But still these are delicious tamales!
  • everything is great. been through the whole menu!
  • Fish taco is amazing.
  • Everything is good
  • The chicken wrap was so delicious!
  • Tamales. Urbano.
  • Don't wait at big star!
  • The brick-and-mortar complement to the city's longest running food truck serves nine standard tamales, like this chicken tamale, as well a small taco menu and artisanal ice cream.
  • Tamales come in sets of two and they let you mix and match if you want to try two!
  • Really yummy quesadillas! And the guac seems expensive, but they give you a ton!
  • tacos are great too!
  • Great service, fun theme, BYOB
  • Tables on patio are great! Service was good, food is great and it's Byob!!
  • The tamales and special sauces are all wonderful! And I crave the elote! Also, their guacamole and chips are some of the best around!!!
