Waked by this place in many occasions. Looking for a late night snack and a cold beer and Palo Alto closes down by 9 PM on weeknights. This place was a beacon in night. Great tacos, nice people and cold beers. What more is needed.

Their veggie burrito is delicious (and cheap). They also have a good variety of salsas. There is outside seating in the back, perfect for lunch.
