Had dinner there before a flight. Carne Tacos were good. Staff friendly, just slow. Probably could have used another person waiting tables. Good enough I'd consider going again, but not top on my list.

IF we have 30 minutes or more, we stop here to eat before boarding. Service is quick and the quality of the street tacos and taco salad are very good and overall healthy options in a sea of fast fried food options.
