I am not sure what I think of this place; it’s your classic Fed Hill spot. Given that it is close to Cross Street, I wasn’t sure if I wanted to love it or hate it. Drink wise – this place is quite disappointing if you want anything but tequila. To be fair, tequila is in their name.
They are making some menu changes – but some of their staples are still on the menu – we started with all the chips and all the dips. It’s unusual that I enjoy all three of the dips. They have their own homemade chips – crispy and a little salty. I have no idea how I survived with the ones that come out of a bag; it is so easy to make your own. They make a decent guac with huge chunks of avocado. I like a little more lime and cilantro, but theirs is solid. The salsa is a basic red salsa – a little spicy and a little sweet, with a lot of flavor. The queso is probably the star – warm, cheesy and creamy.
For real food, we all went with tacos. I thought about the pork and the avocado but was encouraged by the bartender to go with the fish or the steak. The rest of the group was getting steak so I went with Cali Fish. These were some good fish tacos. I’d go back – they are better and way cheaper than Barcocina. The fish tacos come with a fried white fish, topped with a pineapple and jicama slaw. The cabbage adds an additional crunch. They are also super generous with the avocado and cilantro – two of my favorite things.
I’m sure I’ll be back for some tacos and margaritas.
