This restaurant is in a cute neighborhood. We were looking for someplace to eat after a Cardinals game so we choose this. It was ok. There was no kids menu, so I would avoid if you have kids. We weren't aware until we were seated. The food was ok. My husband's food wasn't awesome, mine was good. Overall it was... More

It's very small restaurant with a friendly and cozy atmosphere. It's very authentic and has amazing enchiladas. I am usually a fan of chicken but the pulled pork was delicious. The chips and salsa was excellent and if you're in the mood for dessert the fried cheesecake was very good.

This restaurant is in a older neighborhood with lots of character. We enjoyed the sidewalk seating. The margaritas were wonderful. They have several flavors. Great food and great fun! A little off the beaten path but definitely worth it!

Really good food and lots of adult beverages made this a fun place on a ridiculously rainy night. Had the standard tacos and sides; other family members had other items-enchiladas etc. Everyone was pleased with the food Our server was excellent. Wide variety of Mexican beers of course. Really fun place.

We went on a Saturday night at it was packed so we expected a wait. Twenty minutes passed and we were seated. Our waiter was attentive and the food came out very quickly. The only issue I had was that the beans tasted like they came from a can. Other than that, the chicken and shrimp fajitas and queso dip... More

Food is great, service is decent. Have been for lunch, but am a little skeptical about dinner. Area is experiencing a lot of crime. There is a parking lot directly across from restaurant. Be careful.

The pork chimichanga is one of the best things I've ever tasted. The salsa is very fresh and the mango margaritas are delicious. This is the first place I ask to go when visiting friends in St. Louis.

Hubby and I visited here after MJ Live at river city casino. Food was fresh, even though it was near closing time. They close at 1030, which is pretty early for a Saturday in Soulard. Sangria was fruity and delish, will go again
