- We think the delectable carnitas (pork) marry perfectly with the bright, citrusy kick of the roasted tomatillo salsa. If you're not kissing anyone later, sample the criolla. – Catherine Barker, Washington Post
- The barbacoa was awesome. I'm a huge fan of beef cheek, and all deliciousness that oozes out the end of the tacos. – shawn g., Yelp
- So good, so fresh, so flavorful, so nice. The black beans were excellent. – Lucy M., Yelp
