The food is also priced well on happy hour at $5 for their lettuce wraps, two generous tacos, a mountain of nachos or the signature guacammus. The chicken lettuce wraps were a nice balance between sweet and tangy, with off beat ingredients like dried cherries, mango and pineapple melding with pepitas and macadamia nuts in a tangy vinaigrette. The taco duo was also generous, with your choice of meat served nestled in two flour tortillas garnished with pickled onions and other fancy toppings. These two tacos alone would have made a mighty fine meal.
Off the happy hour menu, but still in reasonable price range, were the waffle fries ($4.95) and a cup of the red pozole ($3.95). The pozole was filled with tender pulled pork and hominy, but was a bit on the tart side, while the fries managed to maintain their crisp well after they had gone cold. A solid happy hour option that earns its place in our regular rotation.
