Upscale restaurant serving authentic Mexican food. Had shrimp tacos and they were excellent!! Chips are served with a few different salsas. Largest selection of tequila I have ever seen. A little hard to find but it is definitely worth it!!

We stopped in for a quick drink and appetizer. The largest selection of Tequila I have ever seen. Great selection of appetizers and excellent service. A little off the beaten path but well worth finding. A must add to your San Diego restaurant bucket list.

This is a neat space with a fun vibe. Moles were all good as reported by colleagues and me. Nice selection of tequila and mezcal.

This place has to offer real Mexican food and drinks. Very cool interior. Food was great and tasty. Service was fast and very friendly. For the best ambiance experience, ask for a table by the window.
