Tacos were amazing. The wait is usually long but its worth it. They serve in the cutest plates and salsa bowls. The tacos are really good. Staff is nice, funny, fun, attentive, helpful. Wish the establishment was bigger and they had bigger tables.

Great tacos, great selection of salsas, and a fun outdoor table experience. There are always people in line there, so be prepared for a wait, but yes you'll enjoy it.

There is street parking but most people walk to it. Really there is minimal need for a car in PV at all.
