- We loved the presentation of the tacos -- all the toppings were arrayed neatly in a geometric dish, in a fun build-your-own taco manner -- but the chicken caught us entirely off-guard. The skin was crisp, the meat intensely juicy. We've never had chicken this good in any restaurant, anywhere. – Katharine Shilcutt, Houston Press
