-I ordered the Lucky Ducky and the Taj Ma-hell and was answered with "I'm sorry, you are NOT lucky today!" It's understandable that the specials can run out, but there was no sign indicating this... It was only 5 pm and they're open until 2 am! So I decided to order the Yucatecan style fish and the smoked chicken mole instead.
-I thought the process would run quickly and smoothly as it's an assembly line, but after I was asked three times what I had ordered, the process became neither.
-The server inexplicably switched my tortilla out after putting chicken mole on it...and put it back in the bin. I'm still confused about this.
-The homemade tortillas were cold, thick, and slightly brittle on the edges.
-The fish was well seasoned and freshly grilled. I was pleasantly surprised that cod could taste so good.
-The chicken mole was slightly spicy and barely smoked; good but not memorable.
-Our favorite was the BarBEERcoa; the meat was moist, tender and well marinated.
-The adobo chicken was also freshly grilled, but there wasn't much of an adobo flavor in my opinion.
-Chorizo and potato tasted bland. We are not sure where the potato went---perhaps it was pureed with the chorizo...
-Lime chili mayo is awesome.
-The free fillings (shredded cabbage, pickled onions, jalapeno peppers, and cilantro) all added distinct flavors and textures that I found creative, colorful and most importantly, very tasty.
-The saffron rice was overcooked and completely flavorless. Black beans were well seasoned--but again, not memorable.
-This is somewhat expensive---four small tacos, two small sides, 2 drinks and about 7 tortilla chips apiece cost $25.
And now for some pictures:

Bottom Line: Yes, I realize that this is only day 3 of this restaurant. I would be willing to return, but I have multiple reservations.
