This place is amazing. Their food, prizes and hospitality are great. Its a sit in little restaurant, doesn't look very appealing but you would want to come back again.

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

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
