REVIEWS OF Tinto Kitchen IN Minnesota

Faye Zigron

Delicious! Best salsa I have ever tried! The plantains with barbacoa on top was amazing. Great, friendly service!

Taylor Clarke

Great food and genuine customer service! Will be back :)

PC Clymer

Absolutely the most delicious made from scratch food around!

Brian Reinstra

Awesome menu great atmosphere!

Nathan Duin

The food was genuinely I-wish-there-was-more outstanding. The service was splendid. Our only problem was the lighting, which was frankly distracting and not overly well thought out. But that's a minor matter. We really do not understand the few bad reviews here.

Kat LaBine

This place is delicious and worth it. They make all their tortillas and chips in house and you can totally taste it! Service was phenomenal. I want to move to this neighborhood just to be a local regular to this place!

Devon Dodge

Quick and friendly service with a sweet colorful patio for lovely summer dining. Tinto has a pretty diverse menu so picking a meal was pretty tricky! Had the Huevos rancheros and carnitas tacos. The Huevos was to die for...while the tacos were super tasty but a tiny bit oily. The chocolate cake for dessert was melt in your mouth amazing. Can't wait to come back again!

Marnie Ochs-Raleigh

Awesome service, fantastic food and the atmosphere was phenomenal, just like being in Mexico sans the beach! We really had a great time and have recommended to several friends!

yohaun keosay

Pernil dish is to die for! So amazing!

Omar Geronimo

Great latin food, although could use some good beer pairing

Tess Trella

The Ropa Vieja is sooo good. The beef is warm and savory, the plantain is soft and sweet, there's a little tangy kick from picked onions, and a drizzle of creamy sauce. It all adds up to a lovely, warm, complex flavor. I could eat that every day. Also great empanadas and desserts!

Russ Hewitt

Me and my wife loved it. Beautiful place casual and stylish. Their homemade corn tortillas were amazing.

Allison Shilts

We came here on a Sunday afternoon. We walked in and we're greeted by a server. We said we would like to sit outside. He had to clean off a table. So we decided to look at the tequila list at the bar while we waited. We ordered a anejo tequila and the bartender said there was no training wheels allowed for that grade of tequila. I asked for a pineapple back and she gave me one. I felt like the bartender was very rude for telling me what I was and wasn't allowed to have. We settled up with the bartender then proceeded outside and sat at a table, which was still dirty. They were not very busy at this time. The server walked past us 4 different times and never acknowledged us. My boyfriend went in to order our food at the bar. He told the same bartender that we wanted a order of the pork belly tacos and the bartender said that she would send the server to our table and wouldn't take our order. We waited about another 5 minutes (so about 20 min total) and decided to get up and leave. We walked around uptown for a while and a couple hours later decided to try again because we really wanted pork belly tacos. I went in and it was the same people working. The server greeted me and asked if we wanted menus. I said yes we would love some and would like to sit outside. Sat down and the bartender came out to our table and said we ordered food from her a couple hours prior and then left so she couldn't serve us. Clearly was a miscommunication. The fact that she wouldn't serve us food was completely ridiculous. It's not like we dine and dashed. We were completely settled up with our bill. Very rude bartender and horrible customer service. I will definitely not ever be back.

Good food but the tacos were weird. Fast service

Zak Thomas

This is my favorite taco joint by far. They always have good food, cheap margaritas and the best service around!

A.F. Smith

flavorless, but pretty food. nice enough place to hang out. their small portions would be fine if they were half the price. pictures are needed on their menu because the descriptions do not accurately describe what you're ordering. food example: soy sauce seems out of place at a latin food restaurant as a "sauce" on the steak entree (small, cut up portion of beef), but gave the dish it's only flavor, and i used that to season my appetizer and my rice-and-beans side dish. no plans to revisit this place.

Justin R

Good atmosphere and friendly staff. The food was mediocre, over priced and the portions are pretty small.

Patti Ryan

Fantastic food! Wonderful staff. Nice location. New place for our family to enjoy!

Heidi Zimmerman

Good service, good food!

Mike DeLong

Wow! This place is fantastic. Everything was delicious, service was excellent. I had the spicy margarita, and it was one of the spiciest I’ve had, and I love it. We went in a somewhat large group for my gf’s birthday and they brought us the …

Brian D

This place is solid. Old spill the wine location. I guess just one thing, Pork belly tacos.... I did taste good but lots of fat on those things. People and ambiance are great. That artist Caleb Barton throw down a sick portrait of Dylan on the wall. See yall at Updown for gaming afterwards.

Abe Hunter

Fabulous food! Nice ambience, fun server!

Dominic Barry

Food was very good and authentic, however the portions were small. This is one of the best restaurants in the twin cities, it’s food is very very good, and the restaurant itself is quite nice. The interior design keeps it from being too loud, and is still very interesting.

Matt Springer

Kind of expensive, but the drinks are great

Michael Muilenburg

Super food and great happy hour menu.

Jonathan Wilson

I agree with the other poster regarding the oblivious staff. We sat for 13 minutes without getting even a glass of water, while I watched 4 servers idling in the corner, laughing and joking. I had to literally get out of my seat, walk over, …

Justin Coyne

Good food, attentive friendly staff. The place is loud, there’s no acoustic treatments. Some of these reviews seem to be from somewhere else as they we’re created before this place opened (Oct-Nov 2017 I think). They do takeaway, but not on Friday or Saturday during dinner.

dean heller

The best shrimp tacos I've ever had. Anywhere.

Stacie G

Didn't eat, just had drinks. Seemed a little slow paced, but my vodka tonic was made appropriately and didn't seem weak. Quiet place, if you just want to sit and chat with friends, instead of yelling over the music. Outside ables and a very small "patio" out back for when it's really nice out.

Efren Flores-Marin

The coco flun was delecios.

Drew McNeill

This is my favorite spot at 50th & Penn. Super friendly ownership and staff, great happy hour, and the best patio in the neighborhood. They have a full liquor license, which is pretty rare in this area and means that they can offer a wider variety of drink options than many surrounding places--including amazing margaritas. It's also worth noting that they have TVs in the bar area, so if you live in the neighborhood and are looking for a place to catch a game, this is one of your only options in this neck of the woods.

Kate Barkow

Nice patio area. Food was delish. Potions are actually the right size. Corn on the "specials" right now is really tasty.

Michael Wraspir

Really nothing special about this restaurant - the food is bland, and the price that you pay for the quality of food is a little on the pricey side.

Carolyn Ritter

Great drinks, limited parking available behind building. Good food and attentive servers!

n l

The food is wonderful and the wait staff very attentive. Can't wait for them to open at their new location.

Brandon Johnston

I loved my meal. The service was friendly. I'll be back.

Matt Siggerud

Great food, drinks, service and and staff.

Carin Skowronsky

I'm not sure which is the bigger showstopper at Tinto, the food or the outstanding service. Either way, if you're Tinto Cocina, I suppos these are two good problem to have. The ambiance is enchanting and vibrant, and the food is full of …

Susan Antby

Great food and drinks! Fun patio.

Nicola Xavier Koh

good food and drinks. service is sometimes a tad slow and can get noisy when full

Jay Dellis

Excellent food and service. Barbacoa tacos and Chilaquiles were superb. Shrimp tacos are flavorful and the salsa that comes with chips taste great. Excellent atmosphere.

Janette Bronner

Great atmosphere and authentic food. Shelia was our server and made our experience amazing. We will definitely be back for our next girls night out.

Casey Widness

Amazing tacos with fresh tortillas made in-house. They also have great specials like Mexican street corn and a delicious Cuban sandwich. Also try their house margarita, it'll knock your socks off!

Santiago Guachamin

Great experience, we got seated right away but forgotten for a bit for which our server apologized. Flavors are great, I'll recommend the ceviche. I can say it was a bit pricey but the flavors justify it.

Jeffrey Lee

Great margaritas and the coldest beer I've ever had in Minneapolis. Did not eat but the food looked and smelled great. We love this place,very cool spot.

Tracy Downing

The margarita was good. But the value of the food for the price was not there.

Morgan Roddy

Had a horrible experience with service and will never come back. Their food costs way too much to have bad service to go with it. The elote was the only thing decent for flavor, otherwise tacos were bland and the margaritas were almost entirely mix. Save your money and go literally anywhere else.

Mary M. Hunstiger

New location at 50th and Penn. Food was filling but no Peruvian flavors to be had. Shrimp Ceviche was missing lime, lemon, onion and chili pepper. Huevos rancheros was missing chili sauce and avocado or guacamole. Tacos ditto. Bland MN food.

Andre Hyde

Try at your own risk

Carmen Montano

I was very disappointed when I heard about an employee who was told last minute to take some time off (not paid) and when he refused the manager fired him and did not pay him his hours. Due to him not having his citizenship or permission to work in the U.S. he couldn't fight for his hours. This is not the first time I have heard something like this happening before.

Shannon Coen

Kevin was fantastic. Food was great. Loved the decor. Prices reasonable. Will go back again.

Megan Bogdalek

Really good food and good service. Would go back! Wish this had a bit more of a menu selection ... but appreciate the different combinations for meals.


Glad we found this place! Awesome atmosphere, food was amazing. Our server Chris was great and the owner Rebecca was so sweet. Can’t wait to go back and enjoy the patio!

Kate Borman

Great patio and food.

Lydia Heemstra

Amazing food, friendly staff, great service and exceptional margaritas... what more could you ask for! Highly recommend this place no doubt about it!

Bryana Smith

Server forgot an order, probably because he never wrote anything down. However, the food was crazy good for everyone at our 7 top! Service was also friendly otherwise.

Brittany Estrada

Great service and delicious food. I always have great experiences here

Ryan Southwick

Overpriced for just OK food.

Casey Widness

Amazing tacos with fresh tortillas made in-house. They also have great specials like Mexican street corn and a delicious Cuban sandwich. Also try their house margarita, it'll knock your socks off!

Anja Sodin

I had very tasty and fresh fish tacos. A bit pricey but delicious!

Pavel Ushakov

Fancy tacos! Who doesn't like tacos? These are fancy tacos! Small menu, wish they carried more options. Great tacos though, fancy.

Christopher Smith

Fish tacos were great!

Dayne Smith

Good food, good service, good outdoor spot

Joseph Richardson

This place was amazing

Katherine Paulson

The Ropa Vieja app was incredible! And the fish tacos were also delicious! They don't have an extensive menu, but what they do serve is excellent.

Stephen Gens

Wonderful experience! Food and service was great!

Jeremy Vrieze

$$$ But very good. This is a great place for drinks and small plates. If you like to eat larger meals supper club/buffet style, you won't leave satisfied.

Liv P

Kind of bummed about their inconsistent food. You can always count on an amazing breakfast there, but their dinner is always a mystery, even if you order the same dish! Went there on 11/17/16 for dinner (maybe 4th or 5th time I'd gone there …

Nathan Briscoe

Great place. Certainly going to add this place to my repertoire.


Pretty terrible, but not so terrible that I'd rate it one star. Food was super bland, kind of disgusting, and way too expensive, especially for the small portion that was given. It was $25 for this plate, and not one thing on it was something I would have paid to eat. At least it didn't LOOK bad though. But it tasted terrible.

Jose Benitez

Some of the best barbacoa tacos I have ever had. Their wine list does not rival Spill the Wine, but it is still good. Only complaint is I was initially told chips were gluten free, only to later learn from the same person that they are …

Alexander Hintz

The menu said best Marg in the Twin Cities 2019 and it didn’t disappoint, awesome! Went well with the chips and guac.

Larry Nielsen

Great soup, fun and tasty tacos, fine service. Indoor and outdoor dining using overhead doors. Parking. Very accessible. Worth the stop.


Most wonderful experience. Delicious food and plentiful mlm Great service.

Emily Seller

My husband and I had just come back from a trip to Peru, so it was fun to visit a place close to home with the same dishes we had just experienced. Our server was knowledgeable and friendly! They have a wonderful outdoor patio as well. I ordered the Enchiladas de Mole and thought they were really good but I would try something different next time just because you have to be a big fan of Mole, since there is so much sauce. I also ordered a house margarita during happy hour. We will definitely come back to try more things!


Kind young kid greeted me during happy hour upon my entering. There was one table of two people and I asked if it was okay to order food from the happy hour menu to go. The young kid said let me check with the manager, since it was dead inside. I saw the manager standing next to the bar chatting and he looked at me, blankly, said no and the young server returned sorrowfully and apologized they could not. I've worked in the service industry for 11 years and that was BS. No good reason whytheycouldn't do it... Money and business is ways to be welcomed.

Sue Wolfe

On a busy beautiful June evening I was able to celebrate my 66 th bday with family and friends on the patio. When I called I was encouraged to come and from start to finish the service, drinks and food were amazing ! Thank you for inspiring me to leave my backyard and venture out!

Amanda Hughes

The best meal out I have had in months. Loved the food, loved the staff. I stopped in there for lunch one Sat. to try some of their Peruvian dishes because of my upcoming trip to that country. They bent over backward (especially the sous-chef from Peru) to make me feel welcome, recommending dishes, coming out and visiting with me, asking me about the trip. It was such a fabulous experience, and if the hospitality is like that in Peru I am good to go! Thank you, thank you for a memorable afternoon!

Somaly Riebe

A great atmosphere. It's a cute little restaurant

Sonja Freeman

Wow this place is 10 out of 10!! Food 10, service 10, drink list 10, atmosphere 10, all the little things 10... Great for dates, that treat yo' self meal, impressing your family, and they have a great sunny patio. They have a seafood-forward menu but also choices for everyone. Not as much if you're vegetarian, but try the breakfast tacos! We ate our guacamole and fish tacos before we took a picture, but we did take a pic of the tuna ceviche. We were served by the bartender on a very quiet Saturday afternoon and we would go back just to hang out with him. He was that nice. I can't say enough good things about Tinto! Go to here!

Michael Swanson

This is not your Taco joint. Fine Latin inspired food with tasty moderate portions that are presented in a way to make Chef Gordon pleased Shrimp tacos had a slight smoky flavor and the red soup was also very good. Linen napkins set the mood.

Clint Carlson

Tintos hasn't let us down yet! Excellent food and drink every time we go. The thing that keeps us going back though is the staff. They like to have fun and we always leave uplifted. Highly recommend!

Matthew Dowgwillo

Food is top notch. Fresh made chips and tortillas, excellent flavors. Check out house-made chorizo, fish tacos, or the pazole soup and you will not be disappointed. Also house margaritas are made with actual juice and not corn syrup so that is a huge plus.

Jon Willoughby

Great food, great service, and great atmosphere. Great place to visit with friends and eat.

Kevin Butler

Nice staff when we were there. The food was decent and we had a couple of margaritas which were good, but pricey.


Horrible place to go for a celebration! My evening started off by telling the server that we were celebrating a birthday. I was the first one seated at the table and explained that my friend, whose birthday it was, would be coming in a little bit. Once she got there I explained that she was here and I would like for her to have a nice evening. It took forever for him to get our drink orders. He seemed more interested in making the men at the table happy than the women. So many things went wrong with this evening, I don't even think I can name them all. I ordered a strawberry margarita that tasted nothing like strawberry at all... I asked to have more strawberry added. My friend felt that the server was very rude to her and that she was ignored when she tried to give her order. I ordered the Pork Flauta - it tasted worse than the pork sandwich at Subway. I had to send it back it was that bad. I decided to order instead chicken tacos thinking that was a better option. They are decidedly small... Very small. And very bland. The tacos came to me with torn up little saucers / shells with what were supposed to be seasoned shredded chicken. The shells were no bigger than a silver dollar! I can get past the fact that the little saucers were torn up but, the chicken had absolutely no flavor. You think you should be able to fold these things up like you would be able to fold up into a taco? I tried to give up and eat this stuff with a fork and hot sauce to no avail. Nobody ate the guacamole as the avocados were old - the guacamole was brown. No one had anything good to say about the server as he was aloof and unavailable. The one good thing that I did hear from an attendee is that the Paella tasted good. Oh, and don't even try and think about getting a free piece of cake on your birthday at this place. They don't do it, unless you bribe "Todd".

Jeff Theis

Good food, staff couldn't be bothered. I am sure it was just our guy...

evan tepper

First visit to the newest spot in the n’hood was everything I could have asked for, and more! They were busy and worked hard to attend to the needs of each customer. Service was personal and guided us to some great options. Looking forward to a return visit!

Jay Vollmer

Excellent food at reasonable prices

Clay H Courtney

Excellent ingredient quality in inspired dishes.

micah w

Tacos are forgettable and with their price point I expect more food or a more unique flavor experience. Plenty of other choices around to try.

Laura R

Great food. The owners are very involved and make a point to say hello and assure all your needs are met. You don't feel like a number, you feel like a guest. In the world of chain restaurant, it is very refreshing to feel welcome and have great food.

Gary Mann

Great inviorment good staff tons of good food. Love this place it has a real party thing going on. I'll be back for sure.

Nicole Townsend

Ask for the street corn! It is not on the menu. Absolutely.addicted. This restaurant always has such fresh, light fare. One of my faves.

Karla Hillier

Great patio, margaritas and food! What's not to love?

Ian Boje

They have tacos... I had no idea what type of place it was. I'd go back.

Lauren Draisey

Great food! The portions were perfect! They do not have any kid options so my 3 year old wasn't too happy. They are willing to accommodate though which was very kind

Frederick Gotfredson Herrera

Everything I have had here is great. Awesome. Neighborhood spot with friendly service. The Tacos are top notch, I really loved the carnitas. The Margaritas are good too. A neighborhood gem in Fulton.

Tommy Gallagher

Not the greatest place. Unfriendly staff, oblivious to even the most obvious expectations when visiting somewhere to eat such as how to even seat us or not hitting us with our food/their arms when bringing the food to the table. The food …

Jake Mohr

My wife and I stopped in for a late-night beverage and an appetizer. The atmosphere was wonderful, the food great, but most of all the service was terrific. They were genuinely invested in our experience - we will be coming back for sure!

Noel Dubuque

My absolute favorite place to dine when I escape to the cities!!!! Amazing food, stellar service always!!!!!

Chelsea Hay

Whether you're out for date night, happy hour, or girls night out- I would definitely recommend Tinto! They have everything from delicious food to amazing drinks, not to mention a very cool atmosphere. I always go for a mojito (Todd's are the best!) and a few tacos. Enjoy :)

Douglas Pack

Delightful Margarita with Mussels !!! Highly recommend

Margaret Janzen

Enjoyed dinner at Tinto Kitchen tonight, especially desserts - including coconut flan & lime pie!

Matt Puerkel

All of their tacos are great! The empanadas were disappointing but that's about the only non great dish I've had here. Great service.

Titi Deshalles

Fantastic food and great service.

Randall Sutton

Best salsa we ever had. I wish I knew how they made it.

Robert Salazar

Dining here reminded me of the time I accidentally locked myself in the fridge as a kid. Really stuffy. And not very warm. And, and I’m sorry, it’s damn sacrilege to NOT have margaritas on the menu at a Mexican joint. Only come here if you’re in walking distance and have no respect for money. Or Mexican food.

Skyler Sutherlin

The food was good. I got the fish tacos and the portion was a little small, and the price was slightly more expensive than what I'm used to paying for a similar meal, but the service was good and overall I was satisfied.

Dustin Hoffmeister

The Ropa Viejo, Barbacoa tacos, fish tacos, Peruvian ceviche, and chips and guac are all delicious! They also have a full liquor license now so cocktails are available.

Celia Magistad

Cute little urban, Latin inspired restaurant. Nice patio, beautifully crafted plates and pretty decent food. Drinks were an absolute 5! Homemade chips and guacamole were irresistible. Atmosphere is casual and cozy. Recommend for date night or small group gathering.

Chad Cramer

You have to come try this amazing place for yourself because words can't describe how great it is! Food was 5 star, the Margarita was over the top and the service was top notch. I can't say enough about this gem of a restaurant! I had the shrimp tacos and they were to die for!

Tim O'Neill

Super cute restaurant, and really tasty food, but we went for dinner last night (three adults and four kids) and the tab was $182 before the tip with no desserts and we all left a little hungry. Sorry, but not quite worth the price.

Mark Roberts

Great casual atmosphere, friendly upbeat service, tasty unique food all around the table.

Emma Mcbride

Cool ambiance, great staff, awesome food. I recommend the fish tacos and the ropa vieja!

David Schmitt

I went to this place two weeks ago on a Wednesday night around 8 p.m. or so. The place was very clean, somewhat clean, but still we were helps right away. Wasn't that hungry to begin with, so I just ended up getting an appetizer of the chips. I'm usually quite picky when it comes to getting enough food for the amount of money I pay, so I was very surprised at the gargantuan amount of chips that I got for just $10 or so. I wasn't sure if the jalapeno would be too spicy, but everything proved to be just right. I was glad to leave stuffed. the staff works quite hard there and it shows. It seems like they can serve you and get you out in a hurry if you would like, or will definitely allow you to stay there and linger for as long as you would like and enjoy just being with company. They also got a couple of gluten free options there as well. I definitely recommend this place and look forward to going back there again sometime soon.

Allison Danielson

Tinto is one of my favorite spots in Minneapolis. We always have wonderful food and service each time we go. We recently rented out their free private dining space for a birthday party, and it was perfect for 12 guests. Our waitress was so attentive and made sure we had everything we needed. Their ropa vieja and pernil are a must try!


Loved it here, great margaritas and the tacos were amazing.

Caleb Chatfield

Great food, but they don’t offer up carry out orders, hence the two stars.

Alex Stuhl

If you've never been here you've been missing out! The tacos are absolutely delicious! One of my favorite bars in the area! Of all the places I've been to I've never met a more fun/accommodating staff!

Peter Lambert

disagree with the reviews that say the food wasn't that good. The food was very good. I would say the service is a little slow but overall a great experience. The water guy was the best part of the experience, friendly, courteous and on the spot with the water refills, wanted to tip him over the server.

Clare Hoogesteger

Let's just call this 20 minute wait for everything. 20 to get seated. 20 for a server. 20 for a drink. 20 more for them to tell me they were out of the wine I ordered. Double down 40 more for food. Waste of an afternoon. Decent food though.

Clayton Haapala

Guac, marg, mojito, Tacos were all great, as was the service. Tinto's has a parking lot, but street parking is easy.

Renee Brastad

My friend and I met at Tinto Kitchen for lunch and enjoyed a couple delicious appetizers ! The waiter was very friendly, the outdoor seating and color scheme was charming , and the owner and her chef husband came outside to greet us and were very friendly! We will be back for dinner next time!!

Katie Cartwright

I live close to Tinto Kitchen so wanted to check it out. We went last night and the food was amazing. We tried several items and really raved about all of them. The service was great and very friendly. Will be going back!

John Aloysius

Great service, fresh plates, delectable cocktails.

Mathew Medley

Fantastic food and service.

Chris Schumann

Really excellent food and great staff and wonderful drinks. Just terrific.

Ron R

Close by great food and service.

Amber Reimer

One of the top spots for authentic Latin food in the Twin Cities. Perfect palomas, great guac, friendly service.

Kevin Coonan, MD

Very good tacos. Good mixed drinks.

Crystal Vrieze

Really liked the shrimp quesadillas and the homemade corn tortillas are awesome. The guacamole was very good too. The waiter was very courteous and made sure my food was not cross contaminated with gluten. Definately will go back.

Audrey Moppin

Came for a quick drink on a Saturday night with my husband. Excellent service and the bartender Todd was very friendly. He recommended we come back for brunch on Sunday. We returned for Sunday brunch and the food was very fresh and filling. We liked that it wasn't super crowded and the prices are reasonable. I will be telling all of my friends and family about Tinto Cocina.

Rich Gross

Really great mojitos!! We went with apps, desserts, and drinks. Nice atmosphere, good layout with U bar surrounded by tables.

Matt Weier

Great tacos and pork chilaquiles. Can't wait until they get their liquor license at the new location Spring 2018 so we can get some of the great drinks back that they had in Uptown. Will have to stop by again after 5pm to get the killer pork Pernil that I loved so much at the old location.

Sarah Mahler

Attentive, friendly staff, ok space. Was busy when we were there so it was tough to find space to wait out the 30 mins we were quoted. Just wine and beer served at the bar, no hard alcohol. Food was ok, not overly flavorful but their hot sauce helped. However, be warned if you have allergies or sensitivity to certain foods. My fiance got violently Ill after eating here Friday. He is allergic to fish, got the pork tacos and it must have been set on the same prep board as their fish. He spent most of the night sick, but was fine after he rid his system of the food. I dont think we will be back.

greg turner

Date Nite with my wife, stopped at tinto to catch a bite to eat, pleasantly surprised by the friendly & attentive staff,The Food was a big hit! Loved the Flavor burst in the spices,Another Date nite is needed soon, Coming back to Tinto Kitchen !!

Kathryn Poirier

Food is good but small portions. Our waiter was hilarious and sassy. Their patio is great and they have blankets for you if you get cold! A bit expensive for what you get but you're bound to have a fun evening with friends for sure.

Garrett Williamson

Good Mexican food at decent prices and great staff but isn't gourmet.

geno bassett

Get the $.50 habanero salsa, it rocks

Steven Kubiak

Fun little corner place, super slow on an early Friday afternoon, I was one of maybe two people there for a late lunch. Got the barbacoa tacos and was not disappointed. Service was attentive and friendly, and the server said he makes the salsa himself which is a nice touch. Will definitely be back

Tim O'Neill

Super cute restaurant, and really tasty food, but we went for dinner last night (three adults and four kids) and the tab was $182 before the tip with no desserts and we all left a little hungry. Sorry, but not quite worth the price.

Martene Ackland

Oh my gosh this place is awesome! My server spent time to get to know my food allergy and went in the back to make me something special that I could eat. It was so amazing! I can't wait to come back!

Andrea Polis

First timer here. Not your traditional Mexican cuisine. Very modern with a limited menu selection. The guacamole was pretty bland, but they had a queso special that was to die for. My fajitas were also fantastic. Served with corn tortillas. I believe their chips are reheated and honestly were stale. Very hip atmosphere.

Alex Buck

Very nice place. Kind of small tacos, but they were delicious. 5 dollar margs also aren't bad.

Cole Lowery

Food was disappointing good for drinks

George Coller

We lived in Austin, TX for seven years so were very excited for this place to open in our neighborhood. We tried three of the taco orders. Loved the beef and my daughter enjoyed her avocado tacos (she’s vegetarian). Tortillas are made in house and really make the difference. Met the owner and she was charming.

Trudy Schimunek

Very lovely atmosphere. Food very good and delicious. Waitress friendly and helpful.

Shishir Ghate

Quick service and great food.
