This lively spot for Mexican is already drawing a young crowd for its margaritas and festive atmosphere. How festive? Well, there are swinging benches near the bar and a flashy neon sign that reads, "Tequila makes my clothes come off." The menu is also sizzling with dishes like Mojo Steak Tacos with chimichurri, or Chipotle Shrimp, and Cerveza-Battered Fish. There are also tostadas, Mexican grilled corn bites, chicken flautas and homemade guacamole. Desserts include classic Mexican churros with warm Nutella dip. Brunch and Happy Hour specials are offered, along with infused tequila flights.
