Upscale Mexican food that won't break the bank. Casual open atmosphere that adds to the vibe. The guacamole is a meal in itself and they add different options to an old standard. We had both the fish tacos and crab cakes. The tacos were stuffed...More

The service was really great, but as to the food, perhaps our expectations were too high since Fodors has called it out. The cocktail selection was good but the food was frankly rather average. Was expecting more.

Excellent Tacos and other entrees in a lively atmosphere on Central Ave. Friendly and helpful wait staff - especially Briana. We went twice during our stay in ABQ and enjoyed both meals. Neighborhood gem.

The tacos and drinks are great however, they are a little pricey. I always get the carne asada tacos which are about 15 dollars for 4 of them. They have a wide selection of margaritas and other drinks - my favorite is the ruby margarita!...More

This was the second time I've eaten here. Always get the tacos (so far) as they are very tasty and expertly prepared. The appetizers are also wonderful, as are the deserts. They have a huge selection of tequilas where you can make your own margarita,...More
