A short menu of guac and chips, ceviche, quesadillas and made-to-order tacos. Vegan and gluten-free options are available, and there’s even a kids’ menu (where tacos come topped with shredded lettuce instead of other more-adult fixings like cilantro).
A few Mexican beers (that can be upgraded to a chelada or michelada), horchata (with or without cold brew), house-made aguas frescas and Mexican sodas. PSA: On weekends, between 4 p.m. and 6 p.m., margaritas are half-price.
The no-reservations space has shared bar seating, and can be booked for private events for up to 30 people. A salsa bar near the order counter is stocked with bottled hot sauce and four different house-made salsas that are made fresh every day.
