Lobo Rey Officially Opens at 1307 S. Wabash

In case you missed it, Lobo Rey - the highly anticipated Mexican restaurant - has officially opened at 1307 S. Wabash.  As a reminder Eater Chicago gives a top line of the concept:
Lobo Rey, a Mexican restaurant featuring flattop table grills and a quick-serve taqueria component, will debut to the general public on Friday in the South Loop, near Soldier Field. The restaurant neighbors The Scout, a popular Bears game day bar on the corner of Wabash and 13th Street, and it shares the same owners. Daniel Espinoza, an Eater Young Gun semifinalist — who’s cooked for Diner Lab pop-ups in Chicago, and who developed the menu at Holy Taco! in Lincoln Park — is in charge of Lobo Rey’s kitchen.
We haven't been yet, but generally speaking the first Yelp reviews seem positive (3 five stars, 4 four stars and 1 three star).  The restaurant is still operating on limited hours and what appears to be a streamlined menu.

That being said, we're pretty excited to check this out.  Has anyone been?  Any thoughts?
