    A pleasant surprise. Everything was very good. There was a mixup on our soup order - we had ordered the Green Pozole and the dish they brought out was not Pozole - we weren't sure though and just thought it was a different type of Pozole. Later when we looked at the menu we realized that we had gotten the Chicken Tortilla Soup by mistake. It was good, but would have liked to have tried the Pozole. Had the seasonal guacamole which was very good, chips were fresh. Carne Asada Norteno taco was fabulous. Queso birria taco was very good., Ahi Tostada was great as well. We will return.

    The food was fantastic and the drinks were tasty. Unfortunately the service we experienced was subpar - the waiter was MIA for most of our dinner and we were constantly waiting to order. The prices seemed high too - $10-15 per taco. I would go again just because the food was so good, but maybe next time I’ll sit at the bar where the service is quicker and they offer happy hour.
