Overall great local tacos with unique fried slightly puffy shell which was different but good. The tacos are large and two of them is a good meal. The workers were very friendly and the place was clean.

Our son took us here. Wow! Best tacos anywhere! We are from Illinois. Wish there was one of these by us! Their flour tacos are fantastic! They are their signature dish and a must! Don't miss this place!

We always order the original tacos. They are generously portioned. The place is consistently busy, especially during lunch time. The service is fast. The Cobblestone Corner location is our favorite, but there is a bustling lunch crowd.

The original flour tacos drip with grease and the enchiladas swim in grease, resulting in a gut ache. Flavorful, but take your tums!
