    Walked in on time for our reservation, there were several open tables on the main floor, but we were brought to the basement-which was empty-and given a high top table right near the steps/bathroom with wobbly stools. We were dressed up for a show that we were seeing so it was uncomfortable. Food was average. Our server was friendly, but rushed us. We were still eating our entrees when our check was brought out, and food was removed that wasn't even touched. We were only there for 65 minutes total-and we ordered apps and drinks, so it's not like we were overstaying our welcome, but we certainly felt that way and basically chugged our drinks and left. Wouldn't return here, there are much better options in the city.

    We love the fish tacos here and decided to have some at the bar. We started by ordering chips with queso and guac. The bartender asked if we wanted a small queso or large. We said small. What came out with the guacamole was a tiny ramekin, green hat is used for a side of ketchup. I said it was a lot smaller than we ever expected. He said yeah I agree, but didn’t offer to bring another one out. A regular service size. So the female bartender checked in and we told her. She said it was ridiculous and brought us a regular one. They did not provide plates or silverware. In fact we didn’t even finish our meal with any silverware. So much for wanting to eat the cabbage left on my plate! The most laughable thing about the evening is that they charged us $1 for that minuscule queso and another $6 for the regular one. Talk about a C- for service. There are so many great places for tacos in Pittsburgh. I won’t be returning.

    Service was slow and waitress seemed to be rushed and forgetful. 3 tacos was definitely not enough for a meal, especially for the guys. Chips were way too salty and we were never offered refills on water/ drinks. Would not go again.

    Food was very tasty and came out fast. However the first bite of my taco was ICE cold. Very flavorful tho. Everything was very flavorful and tasty. Margarita was also yummy. Waiter was very nice. Even with a reservation they didn’t have a table for us. But we sat at a communal table and it was fine.

    My husband and I brought our 3 kids after ice skating downtown. We had an amazing experience. We had to wait about 5 minutes past our reservation time, but we’re treated like royalty. Our server was training a new server and they both were very attentive and friendly. The manager was kind and checked in with the kids to make sure they were enjoying their meal. The food was fresh, hot when served and delicious. We will definitely be back!

    I loved this place & made it a monthly spot for my husband & I. We went there last night for my birthday & it was terrible. The service & the wait time & the waitress. Everything about it. She charged us for 4 cokes even though there was only 2 of us. She didn't bring my husbands chicken taquitos , she didn't refill our drinks, she didn't bring the check , so we had to ask the manager for It. It was just a really bad experience & im very disappointed. I loved that place.

    I was stunned to see corn smut on the menu and at a reasonable price. Maybe I don't get out enough, but I don't think I've seen it on the menu at any other taco joints in the area. Overall the food was very good and the prices were reasonable. I don't know whiskey and tequila well enough to give an honest review of the selection there, but I enjoyed the Woodford reserve.

    Had lunch here before a show. Service was good and food was satisfying. But for a sunny afternoon, the inside of the restaurant was dark and the music was loud. No one was at the bar, so it all felt out of step for the families who were there, including mine. I would recommend the shrimp tacos, which were delicious.

    Chicken in the taco dish selected was dry and stringy. Not at all palatable. Other taco selections were OK. The Queso was delicious! Server was 'surly" at best. If you don't want to work as a server, don't show your attitude to your guests. We have been here before and decided to try it again although we were not blown away before. Not sure we will be back.
