    Good options at the menu. Nice to share things with friends and have a Michelada. Not cozy restaurant, but very central location in Born. Nice place to have a quick bite.

    I've eaten here a few times before. Good tacos, overall decent food. Friendly staff, but if they're busy, a bit distracted. It was a bit too warm and stuffy sitting inside, so wish we had sat at a table outside. Good place for Mexican food, with plenty of options.

    Tortilla soup and fish tacos were very good, guacamole not so great. Cute place though, and a bit loud at lunch.

    Very accommodating, great food, and super interesting with the promotion. The staff was very friendly, the only little disappointment was the waiting time, which was a bit long.

    The place is bright and airy. Clean. No air conditioning but plenty of whirling ceiling fans. The food was ok/good. Salsas on table to spice up the fare. I got a side of ‘refritos’ and chips. Beans were a little too liquid. Chips were good. Lucky there were the hot sauces to boost the taste of the beans. Taco was delicious BUT there was only one on the plate. Charge a euro more and put two tacos on the plate. Put a little garnish salad on the plate too. IMHO, the main dishes should have garnishes so they look a bit more like combo plates for the price. If you are used to US sized portions, you will need to order all the side dishes. The €1,9 tiny beer was ice-cold but tiny. The service was excellent and the head waiter/manager speaks english and was very attentive. I might just go back and try some other plates. The couple next to me ordered the nachos with guacamole which was a generous portion.

    We stopped by for a quick lunch - we had nachos and tacos (Al Pastor and Asada). The service was pleasant and welcoming, they took good care of us and the atmosphere was great. However the food was okay, it would have been much better if it was fresher ingredients. The meat seasonings and spice was great, but the meats were rubbery and had an off taste at times. We left with full bellies, which is the most important part - but we feel there is room for improvement.
