Christian V.Christian Van Brimmer: Al Pastor Tacos are the best! The pescado almost as good. Get the guacamole and the Big Star Margarita made with mescal… A smoky, less sweet alternative. Come at lunch for a minimal wait.

Miroslav L.Miroslav Lysyuk: Get the $30 margarita pitcher, some tacos, and sit back and relax with a friend and people gaze. FYI seats at the bar are a little hard to get, but easier than a table. Once you’re in though, u good
