I love Taco Pica! I love the authentic atmosphere and the warm friendly owners. The food is freshly made and they have healthy options. They also have entertainment on the weekends. I would recommend.

My husband and I have enjoyed Taco Pica and its kind owner on several occasions, and really enjoyed nice Guatamalan food, southwestern in nature but different. Really fun, casual and quiet atmosphere, but with live entertainment on some weekends - very welcoming. Recommend!
