Good food and margaritas – This place has been consistenly good for a few years. Its really a gem. I've never had a bad meal there. The decor is fun and the staff is good. Be prepared to wait because it is a popular place, that is, if you're a party bigger than 2. (Parties of 2 get seated FAST). There's a pub next door to ease your wait.

Not good food, not good service – So-so Mexican food served by a vaguely condescending, unfriendly waiter. Luckily, we went there on a Wednesday, because I would have been upset if we actually waited for this place. La Corneta Taqueria in Glen Park is better, more authentic, and half the price.

worth the wait – since the place is small, it gets crowded quickly and there may be a wait for parties of 3+. but if you're not toooooo famished and opt to wait, your patience will be greatly rewarded. once seated the food comes quickly, is delicious and in big portions. try the sangria or one of the flavored margaritas with your meal.

Delicious – Go early if you don't want to wait. They don't take reservations. The place is small. The decor is indescribable. But if you wait, it's worth it. Food is delicious. Service is good. Try it.

Neighborhood Mexican – A great place where you belong like part of the neighborhood. If the owner doesn't seat you, his son will. The food is good. A great stop for a margarita and a plate of hot comfort food. The service is usually friendly, and if its ever slow you won't notice because you'll have too fun fun looking at the walls or reading the placemats.
