Halyards knows good food and their New Mexican place is awesome. It gets very loud and they play loud music which makes it worse. But the creative tacos and terrific guacamole make it worth it

On entering, the first thing that struck me was the lack of a Latino feel to the atmosphere or staffing. All of the servers were Anglos. The menu was limited to burritos, tacos and quesadillas. Sadly, I'm an enchiladas fan. I ordered the tacos, and...More
