It's a basic taqueria with very friendly staff and several vegetarian choices. I would stick with the regular tacos. We came here as a group of 15 and they tried their best to accommodate us but there were a lot of people waiting for take...More

I get food to go at El Gran amigo quite often, it never disappoints. They also have delicious horchata.

This is a fab place! It's rough in an entirely wonderful way and might even do for the next Tarantino film set. The standard is very high for the price. My burrito was a thigh thick portion. The kids could not eat their portions they...More
