    Excellent lunch and a great addition to downtown Crystal Lake.
    Fantastic chips and salsa, although a little larger salsa bowl would be nice. I had a Herbivore vegan chorizo taco which was excellent! And Spicy Shrimp taco… packs a kick and really tasty.
    Jill had the fish tacos, which may have been the weakest link… she said it seemed a little fish-sticky, but that may come down to whether you prefer fish tacos with breaded fish or not.
    We both loved the black beans as well… I highly recommend eating them like a dip with the chips!
    Drinks-wise, my traditional Cantina 52 (I think it was called) margarita was perfect and Jill enjoyed fancy margaritas… they were a little smaller so she had a couple to my one.
    Speaking of quantity… while they feature “small plates,” they aren’t skimpy and/or overpriced for what you get, which is much appreciated!
    Nice atmosphere. Might be a little loud when it gets busy.
    Will definitely be returning!
