The infusions start with 100% Agave tequila and fresh, organic and often seasonal ingredients are added to create unique combination of flavors. A few of our favorite and notable mentions…Texas Roasted Pecan with Cayenne Pepper and Sea Salt,Three Chiles and Strawberry Jalapeño Margarita.
A slew of infused tequilas, Victoria on tap, and awesome food. And you can't beat the huge patio.
My new favorite restaraunt!! – Man- this place is awesome. The atmosphere is fun and comfortable, the music is great, and the food/margaritas are dang good. They have tons of differently flavored tequilas to make into your very own personalized margarita. The food is not your typical Mexican fare- it's more like "Houston-Mex" with their tortas being more like burgers. The fish and shrimp tacos are *awesome*! The margaritas are pricey and consist nothing more than the tequila of your choice and a squirt of extremely sour lime juice concoction- if that's your "cup of tea" then here's your place! Personally I feel like their juice concoction is a bit too bitter and overshadows the flavors of the margarita sometimes (especially the watermelon flavored one).
The only major downfalls is that it's usually extremely busy, and there isn't a waiting list to be seated. I felt like a vulture trying to track down a table that looked like they were about to complete their meal. At least some sort of LIST would be extremely helpful!!
All and all- I totally <3 this place. If you haven't been- get over there! But be prepared to have your teeth out to get a table!
