“One of my best friends and I stopped in on a Saturday morning to grab a drink to catch up and ended up ordering a tequila sunrise. This drink, by far, was the BEST tequila sunrise I have ever had. The bartender (Nunez,L - amazing bartender by the way) suggested we stay and enjoy a meal, so we took him up on his recommendation. We both ordered the Chilaquiles Verdes along with another tequila sunrise (because this drink was just too amazing to not have another) and I couldn't believe how delicious this meal was! This dish was more than I could have ever asked for because the chips were fresh, crisp, flavorful, and had the salsa verde sauce on ever chip (even on the bottom layered chips and NO, none of the chips were soggy - which was a major plus). Along with the salsa verde, they were topped with refried beans, Birria, queso fresco, pickled red onion, and sour cream. I wouldn't change one thing about this Chilaquiles Verdes plate because it was perfect as is! We were seated immediately, with no wait and the staff was very welcoming and very attentive. The ambiance here, on the outside patio, was remarkable!! I have already suggested this restaurant to so many of my friends and can't wait to return to explore more of the menu or maybe just order the Chilaquiles Verdes again!”
