Outside of any of Rick Bayless' downtown Chicago restaurants, you will not find a more flavorful and/or quality driven Mexican establishment! This place is the real deal...you can't go wrong with anything on the menu or with the cocktails, especially the margaritas! Caveat: you must get there early to get a table and, at times, I've felt rushed by the... More

I love this place. The food and drinks are delicious, and the service is typically on point. The only drawback to this place is how small the restaurant is. You'll be cramped next to many other visitors while you're eating. If you have a large party, perhaps this might not be the place for you. However, it's perfect for a... More

I have gone to this restaurant at least four times in the last few years. The experience has been consistently disappointing. The food was good but the arrogant attitude of the staff made a very negative impact on the meal. I would not go back even if they offered the food for free.

It is difficult to make reservations ahead of time as this restaurant is very small, but they do offer 'call ahead seating' if you register your phone number with them. Regardless of the difficulty getting in, it is WELL WORTH IT! We like to go with a group of 4, and order a few items at a time to share.... More

Usually crowded and not cheap - absolutely worth the wait and price. Just excellent Mexican food, served in an attractive and classy manner. Large variety of drink and dishes.

Sat outside on a lovely sunny day, staff were attentive and efficient. Food was quick and really tasty, smallish portions but certainly enough for me. Really tasty, authentic Mexican food, not American version of Mexican! I love the outdoor area, really well done with areas in the shade and sun. Drinks were amazing, had a delicious Mojito. Would definitely return.

Food has great flavor. Small portions for the price. Staff extremely friendly and attentive. A bit too much cheese on everything.

The food was not great, small portion. It is a little pretentious. Staff were friendly. Just not a fan.

The drinks are as amazing as the tacos. Plan on a long wait on the weekends, because it is so good that they are always packed. The place is small, so it can be noisy, but after trying the food and margaritas, you will know that it was worth the wait!
