Lana J., who was the first Yelper to review the new spot on Dec. 13, wrote, "A unique twist to Mexican food. I ordered the Bistec kebabs and chicken wings as appetizers. The kebabs were enough to feed four, and their chicken wings have a zesty barbecue kick. Loved the chicken wings."

And Greta K. wrote, "The food was excellent. I had the chicken BALT with homemade chipotle mayonnaise and it was excellent. My mom had a salad with salmon on top, which was cooked to perfection."
