The title says it all. If you need a fantastic taco, this is the spot. Four beers, ten tacos, and guacamole, all for about $15 American (300 pesos)...can't be beat. It's crowded, hot, and the chairs/tables are all crammed in there, but who cares. The...More

Truly excellent food. Equally excellent service. Everything on the menu is great. It's a bit hot and humid, but it's totally worth it.

My husband and I came here our first night in PV. We ordered Al Pastor and Carne Asada tacos both were good, but not amazing. We also ordered quesadillas which were some of the best we had our whole trip. The food was good and...More

Obviously the reason to go here are the tacos al pastor. They have several other filling options.. Plus quesadillas and other fare, but you're doing yourself a disservice if you don't get the al pastor. It's a pretty small place but if you time it...More

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
