It look great after their renovation. love this please and their food is very tasty I can say that is the the best food in Battle Creek. The Ceviche and the avocados was really good

Review №4

WOW this is a real food. Everything was fresh and hot. The burrito bowl have a great taste and the Ceviche has a special sauce which make the plate different . This place will be my spot for family reunion and gather together with my friends. Love the colors inside and the server was very professional. The Mojito is my favorite drink. My rate will be 5+.

Delicious, fresh food! Nothing else like it in Battle Creek. Get the Spicy Chicken Fries and add a side of guacamole Burrito bowl is also super tasty and lasts me two meals personally!

Review №9

Nice place. Great service and food. Lighting was a.little dark for my taste but I'll be going back real soon

Review №10

Gatos feed me rotten sour cream! I wondered why it was so runny but when I took my first bite I spit it out immediately both tasting and smelling it had turned bad. They still charged me for the appetizer. When I question why this ever happened the waitress was snarky. I will never return. And people need to be warned that you can have a good meal one time at this establishment and the next time get poisoned!! I had an upset stomach the rest of the night. Do yourself a favor don't roll the dice and get a safe meal somewhere else. How are you going to serve fresh food and rotten sour cream together gatos? Good grief!

Ordered Chicken tacos, shrimp salad and sweet plantains to-go. Ordered online an hour and a half in advance. When I got out of work to pick it up, it was ready to go. I will be ordering again, and I am glad it is so close to my home.

We were there for the Friday night Latin party - and were pleasantly surprised: the place is well renovated and spacious. Good crowd, nice people, good music and reasonably priced drinks. Great for the start of the weekend!

Review №18

Review №20

Nice place I really don't understand why people don't appreciated local business. Come on this place was close and under renovation for a few years and It look like a lot of money was invested , now is open and ready to serve the north of Battle Creek and a couple people trying to complain about what ever they thing the place need. My recommendation for all this negative and toxic peoples IS : Invest you money to see what can you come out with. I really like your place and I encourage the neighborhood of battle creek to support LOCAL BUSINESS. YOUR FOOD IS GREAT NOBODY IN THIS AREA HAVE YOUR FLAVOR. THIS IS A DIFFERENT STYLE. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

Review №21

I was part of a group that had a private event, and everything was sublime! It's a cozy place with areas for entertaining and a nice bar area. The food was delicious, fresh, and very authentic. I'll be frequenting this wonderful little place!

Review №22

Even though there was a lack of help, menu's, empanadas and beer, and an incredibly long wait, I'm still giving it 5 stars. Nice atmosphere and people and delicious food. Everything was fresh and homemade. The menu is unlike anything around. I want to try everything at least once before I decide a favorite, but the mixed chicken and rice is my top. Very cheap prices too.

Review №23

Wow beautiful place nothing compare with the old Iris pub. Great atmosphere , friendly staff, WONDERFUL AND TASTY FOOD. affordable prices when is come to a big family. I definitely recommend the place.

Review №24

Review №26

Good flavor, good portions and a nice price.. The menu is more expensive than what is online.

Review №27

This place lacks atmosphere and not very welcoming. I went with my friend and would not feel comfortable coming back. The appetizer was tasty. I am also a wine drinker and they did not have wine.

Review №28

Even of my waiting time the food worth the time. The rice with Shrimp and the empanadas was very good. My wife try the chicken chunk with plantain with also was great. Definitely we recommended this place.

Review №29

It's going through some growing pains, but that's to be expected. I had the Chicken and Rice. Really liked the flavor though I thought it was a little to mild. Thought it could use a little.more kick. Our waitress was great!!! She was rushed, had a lot of tables, but always kept her smile and attitude. Definitely worth another go around.

Review №30

The menu offers a great alternative to the standard bar food. The empanadas and cilantro sauce was very good. Our dinner came quickly and out server was fantastic.

Ordered food to go. Online menu says $5.99 for quesadillas and I was charged $8.Called order in 20 mins early and still waited 18 mins for food. Food was very good, but overpriced for only 4 small pieces. Still needs a lot of work.
