This restaurant offers a funky, fun atmosphere for Mexican food. The menu is diverse, with gluten free and vegan options available. Chips and salsa were excellent. Hangar steak fajitas with mushrooms were fair. Shrimp dish was excellent. Guacamole was great. Pleasant service.

Crowded. Noisy. Busy weekend so to be expected. Brazilian steak not my favorite. Wait staff worked hard. Probably suggest a brewpub.
