    Our server was amazing, she took care of every single request and was always one step ahead. The entire staff was just the best. Food was delicious and unique. I do think that costs are out of control though, I know, I know, don't go out if you can't afford it. 2 burgers with fries, 1 pitcher of house/basic margaritas (a pitcher that is 1/2 ice - so 1/2 a pitcher of liquid, that's it. $97 total food and drink before tip. Costs are rising and of course you need to pass it along to the customer, it's justified - but so is calling attention to it. Will costs come down? I'm not counting on it. Still, great service and great food, lively atmosphere, just not a good value.

    Always great service, and vibe, but food wasn’t up to it’s usual standards. Chips were plain, tacos were dry (egg/chorizo, marinated chicken), and queso seemed reheated as it thickened quickly.

    The food was mediocre, however the service was great. There was one waitress and she was doing everything - making the drinks at the bar and taking care of the tables. I’m not sure how she did it all but she did a great job! It was really frustrating because we went there to watch the Sunday night football game, however instead of the game they had boy band music playing extremely loud. We asked them to switch the sound from the music to the game and they said they don’t do that during dinner… There were four tables inside that had people at them and three of the tables were watching football. It was extremely frustrating, we won’t be going back there for the games or the food.

    We went to this bar/pub at 5:30 pm on a Friday and it was very mellow. Not a lot of folks but lots of TV screens with sports on them. We were impressed with the service (fast, friendly, respectful….thanks Aubrey!) and the food ( a Tex-Mex fusion of dishes that were fresh and delish with hot churros and three sweet dips for dessert.) We’re bringing our friends next time.

    We understand the bartender was alone, bartending and taking orders but there were only like 10/12 people, took more than 15 mins to get a second drink but we had to ask the busser to tell the bartender, while the bartender was talking to one customer and being on the phone, and took more than 20 mins for the bartender to pick up the check so we can go, she never picked it up, we had to go up. This is our second time here, first time was amazing service but this time was just as bad as a Buffalo Wild Wings service.

    This restaurant is excellent. The food is fresh, delicious and affordable. The staff was so nice and helpful. I would definitely eat here again. Perfect for a family, a date or just to hang out and relax. I had the tortilla soup with chicken, my daughter had the salmon and my husband had a salad with shrimp- it was all perfect!

    I love this place. They had the BEST buffalo chicken wings I’ve ever had until they stopped using natural chickens and switched to what was hormoned or steroided out big brutal chicken wings. This makes them unnaturally big and rubbery. If they go back to natural chickens, these wings can not be beat.

    ALWAYS A GREAT TIME! This is our "Go-to" spot: Dates, anniversaries, special occasions, just because! The Ownership and staff always have a good time, and make sure we do as well. My girl is from Texas which is how we first discovered this spot, and it never lets us down; From the Queso to the tacos and everything in-between (Helpful Hint: While everything is amazing, the burger is INCREDIBLE!) -Thanks to TJ for the great service!

    Measly portions, the refried beans tasted burnt. The cheese in the enchilada was barely melted. Worst of all while most restaurants give you chips and salsa, this one charges and they were very subpar. The chips had a yucky seasoning.

    Charged us for soda refill. Charge for chips & salsa- most places it’s complimentary. Ala carte taco size of a toddler portion. Tortilla Chips tasted like very stale Doritos. Salsa was awful- consistency of watery applesauce. Terrible flavor. Everything just tasted odd- queso tasted like velvetta processed cheese. Overall and for the money spent it was so disappointing on multiple levels. Love that it’s dog friendly. Super nice option.

    We loved it! The waitstaff, drinks, food, vibe — everything! One star less because the music was too loud to have a conversation with our friends across the booth from us. We’ll be back, though. DH & I might sit at the bar. Bonus: found metered street parking on Sunset, 7PM on a Friday! Unfortunately friends paid $25 in a lot north of Sunset.

    I wanted to love this place but the food was horrible! My whole table wasn’t satisfied and my friend even sent back her tortilla soup. I don’t understand bad Mexican food in Los Angeles at this point. Items we ordered: 1.Caesar salad w/ salmon (fishy salmon & grilled stalks of romaine with no flavor) 2.Impossible meat tacos - you can tell the meat was old and had been sitting. Nothing seemed to be made fresh but the chips! Salty and hard meat and rice. You know how rice at the bottom of the pan gets rubbery and sticks? That’s what the my served with salty puréed black beans. 3. Steak fajitas- hard to mess up right? Wrong! Unflavored meat that was old as well. I keep thinking about how everything must be sitting under a hot plate and not made fresh because which also explains why the food came out so fast 4. Steak and shrimp burrito- nothing but meat, no rice and beans and very bland. My brother said it was ok but he wouldn’t order again 5. Vegan queso appetizer - very bland! Made from cashew nut, smelled like chili but tasted like soup! We were all confused 6. Drinks! The best part indeed. We had a round of Cadillac margaritas, frozen strawberry marg (from a mix), Belgian white )since they were out of Blue Moon) The music was fun and they had the Laker game and NCAA basketball on the big screens. The menu and signage with cute names, quotes, and puns really made me want to have this place be the new spot for Tex Mex goodies but it was a major fail and I felt kind of embarrassed that I got my crew together for such a disappointing meal but they understood I was trying something new 😕

    The food was awful. Had two tacos, both tortillas were soggy and flavor was mediocre . Drinks were inconsistent flavor. If you ordered the same drink twice, one tasted vastly different . Our waitress was super kind and accommodating. No complaints about the service .

    It was truly strange - not one staff member was wearing a mask even though that is a city order! The waitstaff, bartender, host were all maskless the entire time we were there. They also did not check our vaccination status to sit inside. On a Saturday lunch time, the place was completely empty for a bit until two other parties came, but overall the vibe was sad. We joked that because it’s a Tex Mex place, they were abiding by Texan Covid regulations (meaning zero). Definitely won’t return! I could maybe see this place being fun when you’re out parting on a weekend late night, but an odd place during the day and not safe!

    A good Mexican restaurant only needs two good things: chips and salsa, and margaritas. Justin Quesos had neither. The chips were tasteless and the margarita was too tart. The salsa was boring and had no pep. The shrimp taco I ordered was nice but the chicken taco was awful. I woke up at 2am with a stomach ache.
