We ate here on a Saturday evening - very busy - service very quick but the food was awful. Tacos with meat and also with chicken but the sauces were really bad. Would not recommend.

Been here a few times and was never disappointed. Excellent quality food, eclectic atmosphere and good prices. One of the Best Mexican Restaurants in Charleston - a bit off the beaten path & not easy to find, but well worth the trip!

The food was very quick. After reading all of the good reviews, I was disappointed. The food was bland and dry. The chips were hard

I had read so many great reviews of this restaurant that I was expecting it not to look like much, yet offer delicious food. Perhaps I ordered the wrong food. I order the chicken mole poblano. It was fine. My friend also had a chicken...More
