The past few times I've driven by, there have been signs of construction/renovation starting to ramp up. Can't wait until it's finished!

I walked by this weekend, and it looked like they were having a soft opening. It looks nice inside, and bigger than I expected.

I saw from a Friend on FB that apparently real opening is Wednesday. Not 100% sure if that's accurate or not.

I'm so excited about this.  I'm hoping this can be my new go to spot now that Burrito Gallery has completely sold out.

Just had lunch there... nice place... food is very good... cannot wait to try Happy Hour as the bar looks... inviting.... Was informed that menudo will be available on weekends.  Now THATs authentic...  8)
In a boat at sea one of the men began to bore a hole in the bottom of the boat. On being remonstrating with, he answered, "I am only boring under my own seat." "Yes," said his companions, "but when the sea rushes in we shall all be drowned with you."

Not the same.  Nacho Taco falls more into the  Baymeadows La Nop & Pepes mexican realm.  Then there's the middle ground of San Marco La Nop, Mr Taco, Taco Libre, Cantina Louie, Salsas. Upper tier is Taco Lu and Flying Iguana.  I'm hoping this is above and beyond upper tier for my taco fix.

BG is off the list now that they charge $9 for a margarita and serve the tacos on 2" tortillas.  Lolas is also a no go.

I was there also.  The food was really good and the restaurant was running smoothly for a place that just opened.

My only concern is that the price points for lunch - $11 (no drink) may be a tad high for the immediate neighborhood since we don't really have any mid-tier office workers around.  I would think most of the traffic through here at lunch time is not the type that's looking for a $15 lunch.  Hopefully they can pull enough from outside the area to keep it going. 

And to clarify, for what you get - an app and an entree w/ sides - isn't a bad deal, but I'd personally like to see a menu selection w/ smaller portions and a lower price point.

I agree with the price point issue... but I can certainly see myself sitting at the bar...
