The food and service were excellent! They have many different hot sauces at a serve yourself area that run the gamut from barely tickle your tongue to melt it! With plenty of choices in between. You order at a window (inside) and they come around to refill your drinks. Eaten there several times on trips to Tampa and food has always impressed. Price is reasonable, too.

We are in Tampa to visit and found this fun place to eat. Very good chips, guacamole, and tacos -- but the salsa bar was the best! Our grandson loved mixing the hottest salsas together to see if he could set my mouth on fire! Great staff and atmosphere!

I ordered the chicken taquitos. They were the least like taquitos, I have ever had. Basically, fried tortillas filled with chicken lying on a bed of lettuce, quac, and salsa. There is an extensive salsa bar, but you don't get free chips with your order, so no way to really sample the salsa.

Service was good, but the food was dry, greasy, and just not that great.

It lies somewhere between Taco Bell and Chipotle’s but sells beer and wine. The ground beef in my quesadillas was burnt and the chips too salty. Waitresses were very nice.

I ordered the special for Tuesday: 2 tacos and a soda for 5.95$. Good deal.
Let me digress-- upon entering this restaurant I was swept up in the up- beat optimism of its set up. The bright colors, friendly staff and loyd music was a mood elevated.
The food was bland and cold. The chips are good and I heard the sangria was tasty.
Skip this place unless you are only looking for chips and beer.
