The hours can be annoying and the wait can seem daunting, but there are a ton of people for a reason. You can always expect this stop to be flavorful and fresh. MUST EAT THESE TACOS, you won't regret it.

We love this place. Best al pastor tacos and quesadillas anywhere. There's usually a wait, but not too long. Order and beer or margarita to enjoy. You'll also meet nice people while you wait. A favorite for tourists and locals alike. Very affordable.

They put a small slice of pineapple on top of the tacos al pastor but they also have three side sauces. I do not know what the sauces are but the green and dark red sauces are not spicy at all and the orange is hot.

No the tacos are plain. They give you at least 4 different sauces to put on them and they go from mild to HOT. They will also tell you which sauce is which. The HOT is HOT. If this helped please mark such on TA
