We came here after a basketball game at the Spectrum Center, short walk for a quick bite. The nachos were delicious, a little spicy, and the food came out super fast! This was a great place to eat!

Had great fresh guacamole that was really good. Pico was great and meat nachos were good. Husband had the blood orange margarita and ordered another. They were sour enough. I’d come back
