    The enchiladas were very salty and over baked to the point of dry and rubbery. The Paloma cocktail was bitter.

    Came for Taco Tuesday, even with a reservation there was a 10 minute wait to be seated. I got the impression they had just had a shift change and they were playing catch-up with available tables. High top is small for the amount of tacos/appetizers/drinks chips you'll get, I recommend standard seating. Waiter was friendly and attentive, have never had an issue with table service here. Taco of the month was Octopus (pass) but adobada and carnitas were *chefs kiss*. Appetizer potato tacos (6) were very crunchy and yummy, complimentary chips and salsa came with the most delicious smoky salsa.

    Love this location. It’s definitely one of their nicest in San Diego. Drinks are always on point, food is always deliciously consistent. Favorite dishes are the Mango Shrimp Cevichd (do not pass this up!), classic guac, and the (off the menu) Hero Taco (aka Surf & Turf). You will not be disappointed!

    Birthday celebration. There is a communication breakdown between the hosts and servers. The hosts wished my son happy birthday because I stated it on our reservation. However, our server had know idea. I had to ask her if she knew toward the end of our meal and she said no it was not communicated to her. Food was great!

    Lunchtime-restaurant was pretty quiet. Started with chips and salsa and chicken taquitos. Salsa is great. Chips just ok, taquitos we’re served hot and yummy with the delicious salsas. Mojito and Paloma cocktails refreshing. Both the Cesar salad with chicken and Mexican chopped salad with shrimp were served nice and cold. Not over dressed. Delish!!

    Having never been here before, I expected menu items to be middle of the range expensive ($20) for a good-size entree. Looking over the menu, tacos are $8-10$ EACH which seems hard to defend. I ordered the carnitas which was flavored well but I think a portion size at Chipotle is bigger and for a lot cheaper than the $22 I paid. Probably would not come back again based on the portion size. Clearly I’m in the minority as the place was quite crowded on a Friday afternoon. Ambiance was nice, service was good.
