Slow service with one waitress for pretty much the entire place for lunch. Appetizer cam out with lunch. Nacho chips tastes rancid. Fish and shrimp tacos weren't edible. Left half of the burrito Badness all around

The best chorizo I have eaten without question. The cheeses, jalapeño cream, eggs, and chorizo make a savory blend. Chips and salsa were disappointing as the chips were sprinkled with a flavored red powder - note to restaurateur, don't do this; your food doesn't need...More
