I really loved this place. Excellent atmosphere, friendly staff, and food is YUMMY! Guacamole is made at the table. Nachos are great. To me the best thing(s) on the menu is/are TACOS. delicious stuff! Old Fashioned is made well. this was my first visit, and...definitely NOT the last! THANKS! P. S. Too bad they do not take reservations (wink wink)More

Let’s keep it short and simple. We sat at the bar and the Syracuse, NY bartender was excellent and super friendly. The chips and the drunken black bean queso dip was just too good. Deciding what to eat on the menu was the hardest part....Just reading the food descriptions were mouth watering trying to decide what to get. We went with two tacos each. Los Cabos and the cluckin’ mango for me. My wife had the pollo rojo and the coco cabana. Super excellent. Fresh ingredients, home made corn tortilla for my taco and the flavors were outstanding. We will definitely be back.More

After hearing how wonderful this place was I put this on my list of places to go. Our visit was less than great. On the inside it is more or less a dive. Doesn’t have the appearance of clean. Our waitress wasn’t very friendly and...didn’t seem to be paying close attention as she missed our questions. The margaritas on $5.00 special must be money makers as they had no more than a splash of tequila. I had two and didn’t feel anything , I barely tasted tequila. It was like one of those cheap pre-made grocery store mixes. The street tacos were tiny. They should sell them in groups of 3 instead of individually. My short rib burrito came out cold and the meat was dry like leather. Not good for a $14 burrito. I normally give places a second try before I make up my mind. In this case I see little reason to return.More

Enjoyed great (large) plate of nachos and super special margaritas outdoors while the sun set. What could be better? Also, very friendly waiters! Can't wait to go back!

After waiting for 40 minutes for a table than 40 minutes to wait to order dinner from table waitress could not handle the few tables she had. Tacos are small street size so don’t order just one. Many orders around us were getting wrong as...for our own. If going to drink and just get a small thing to eat is only way I would recommend. Though for a family meal it is a joke. $120 for 4 of us with no alcohol drink it’s outrageous with two of us leaving still hungry is sad.More

This is a fantastic restaurant. The margaritas are delicious and addicting. The food was fresh and perfectly done. The staff are friendly and make sure you’re taken care off. Living out of state is a shame because I wont get to go here all the...time but we are definitely planning a trip to the area. This place is number one on the list to visit.More

I would have gave it five stars if it would have been so long to get a table. Arrived at 4:30 and waited approximately 1:10 minutes for a seat. The food was great for kids and the tacos were amazing. I would come back just...as long as I didn't have to wait that long.More
