Service
 
For “reasonably priced” Mexican cuisine ranging from “quality” standards to “not your daddy’s” regional dishes, this full-service trio (which started with the South End “hole-in-the-wall” ) is a “required visit” ; some quibble that you may have to “flag down” servers, but add margaritas or cervezas to the mix and a “fun night” is all but guaranteed.

I came here for a quick lunch, and ordered two tacos. The food was good, and the service was fast. Inexplicably, the entire place smelled like cheap cologne – I stopped noticing after a bit, but it was rather off-putting.

Good food at reasonable price. Very friendly staff. Small but comfortable bar. Great margaritas !

We made a reservation via OpenTable and they refused to honor the reservation and said "we're not used to online reservations". Manager called after posting complaint and offered apology and free drinks. Will try again!
