    We loved the food and service was really good, the only downside when dining with kids there are a lot of smokers sitting outside

    Came here for lunch with the Dimmi discount. The highlight for us was the corn, beef rib tacos, and the chorizo quesadillas. Service was prompt and polite. Good selection of Mexican beers and tequila.

    Great,clean excellent service. The place is chilled comfortable and excellent food. Must do the cup of street corn - fabulous. Great value for money the food is excellent. The bar is priced as expected not the cheapest, but for a great atmosphere its not over priced.
