Four of us recently dined at this funky restaurant and were all pleased with the experience. The decor of toy iguanas and frogs is amusing, but the menu was sophisticated. We had tamales which are filled with chicken or pork - both excellent; shrimp ceviche...More

Well, after a long night burning all our energy at the Roller Rink across the street, and a run over to the frozen yogurt shop down the road, we were still in need of food. The Taqueria still had it's lights on, and there were...More
