Saw this place had opened, and decided to give it a try on Friday night. Got there reasonably early, and were seated right away, but the time we finished up, the place was really busy - lots of people standing at the bar. Overall was pretty impressed - my friend and I split some guacamole to start, which they serve in stone bowls. There were a lot of big chunks which was a little annoying. They offer you mild, medium or hot. We ordered hot, and it wasn't too spicy. Also two hot sauces on the side - one was very spicy.

For our mains my friend thought he ordered a chicken burrito, but instead it was steak and shrimp. I was served "wet" with a green and red sauce. Said it was the best burrito he every had. I had the fish tacos, which came in an order of three. They were good - deep fried white fish, with an interesting cabbage/slaw on top. They came with a bean and rice side, which I thought was kind of overkill.

I had a couple drinks - a mojito and a margarita. Both very good. And as an added bonus we were by the kitchen and watched one woman make all the tortillas fresh.

I believe it was their first night, and there were a few bumps in the service, but nothing that would ruined our night. Will definitely try them again.
