I've been here twice, once they catered a dinner event we had at work and once I went for dinner with my cousin. I think I really liked it the first time because I had been drinking and you know alcohol makes the world go round. I had the veggie tacos and they were pretty filling. I did the rice, guac, onions and some other stuff. The second time I just had chips and guac which I wasn't that into.

The restaurant is very cute and small, they fill the orders very quickly and the staff is nice. It's great for a quick, cheap bite to eat.
