A perfect place for a lunch date. The fresh guacamole is amazing and the salsa is smoky because of the chipotle peppers. Super delicious. My husband and I share several tacos and they were all outstanding. Our favorites were the fish tacos and the pork...More

Slow service and very overpriced for what it does. It’s in the middle of city and there probably gets some trade but there are better places for this type of food in the area.

You can park by the stadium and walk to the restaurant. Its a pretty decent walk and nice to look around and see the sights and sounds of the city.

I can't think of any truly quiet spots due to the open loft-style layout of the restaurant. The quietest areas would be upstairs to the left.
