“Since opening, we have introduced several tacos as limited-time specials, and the response generated led us to introduce new items, many that go beyond tacos,” commented Chef Daniels. “Our tacos have gained a loyal following over the past two years from those looking for an interesting and unique flavor experience, so we wanted to launch the new menu by giving our fans an opportunity to be the first to sample. I am proud of some of the new tacos, including the rabbit, BBQ beef tongue and surf n’ turf, which features a savory combination of lobster and pancetta.”

The restaurant also offers more than 30 canned craft beers, six rotating draught options, select bottled large-format beers, Sofia Blanc de Blancs Sparkling Wine, all-natural non-alcoholic beverages and fresh-made aguas frescas. A Happy Hour is offered every Monday through Friday from 2 p.m. – 6 p.m. and 9 p.m. – 11 p.m. with $2 off all beers and $1 off all tacos.
