MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

The simple pleasures of tacos and beer get taken to the next level at this laid-back spot, where hand-ground, hand-griddled blue corn tortillas star on every corner of the menu, and craft brews leave Corona in the dust. With just one chef and one bartender, the service is friendly and personal, with a healthy dose of genuine passion for the food (and a fun classic rock soundtrack). Snag an IPA before taking a full lap of the short menu: freshly fried chips with outstanding guacamole, warm tortillas piled with achiote-marinated pork and pickled onions, as well as a gooey Oaxacan cheese quesadilla stuffed with tender chicken. A trio of house-made hot sauces (including a habanero "death sauce") make for the perfect grace note.
