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.

Great guacamole! The tamarind margarita was delicious, and the steak was perfect.

Tiny place, just a few tables but the service and food was great.

Came here with a group of friends last Sunday. We ordered a bunch of their appetizers including the empanadas, chips and guac. Absolutely delicious. I'm pretty sure we got 60% fill from that alone. Then entrees were 8 tacos, chimichangas, and shrimp and rice. Completely filing for all of us. And their service was amazing. Drink wise we had beer, margaritas, and mojitos. We most certainly would return! Plus there is one 2 blocks from home!
