Based on a discussion in another thread (the steak thread?), I decided to try it tonight. It was a little confusing to find b/c the board outside says, "The Curtain." Apparently dinner service is new, per the waiter.

We decided to sit on the patio, which was heated and actually surprisingly pleasant. Menu is short and seems heavily weighted toward tacos and burgers. Partner got the turkey burger w/ fries. I got (upon the rec of the cook) the pork carnitas tacos. I ordered a side of guac and chips (to see why they were priced at $7.50).

Turkey burger was good but not amazing. Good bun, well-cooked, but a little bland. Carnitas were excellent -- nicely crispy and fatty, beans were well-cooked and were mild but well-seasoned. They had apparently run out of guac and chips, so I ordered the chicken tortilla soup instead. It was easily the best part of the meal. Great flavor, very satisfying. Dessert was caramel ice cream on top of a small apple tart. I think the apples were a little overly sweet, but I otherwise enjoyed it.

Service was very gracious (according to the cook, the waiter was new).

$40 before tax (drinks were water and an Arnold Palmer). Kind of overpriced? Maybe a little, but I'd definitely return.
