It is rare that a place opens with better food and service than it has months later, but this place has lost its identity already. What kind of tacos do they serve? On three occasions, they served 3 different styles of chicken. Once cubed chicken breast that was delicious. Next time, pulled dark meat with skin and gristle. Third time was not distinguishable. Same with the Asada... which recipe will you receive tonight? Salads are not tossed, until they are, then not again. Last night, we were among many tables unhappy with the service, but it wasn't the waitress' fault as she had the entire restaurant to serve. Our food arrived cold and the sliders that my wife ordered had to be investigated to find the cheese. The buns were rock hard too. We really enjoyed our first visit even with the clumsy service, but every visit since has been challenged in a different way and it doesn't seem like the place can establish its own identity through consistency.

Dined there the other day for lunch. I was ordered a TAP BEER - it arrived warm. I sent it back and received the comment "Yea, we've had problems with our refrigerators" ... Wow! The chicken sandwiched (crispy) had a horrible breading. They a player on the patio... but they are clearly being clobbered by the Brewery across the street and don't seem at all interested in marketing their recent renovations. OWNERS: study what they are doing across the street - you can seize part of that market!
