Like all of the other reviews state, the al pastor tacos were amazing. It was probably the best taco I have ever had. They were making the tortillas fresh right there. She had a giant bowl of dough and she hand cranked it through a little machine that cut out the circles. Then she put the circles on the grill.... More

The best authentic Mexican tacos around. I love the pork. Small hole in the wall mom and pop place that needs more servers but it has the best food. Prices are very reasonable.

You'll know immediately that you're in the right place when you see the pineapple topped spinning cone of meat. Small restaurant and so very fresh! Order the al pastor. They will bring you a giant plate with melted cheese and tortillas that haven't seen an hour pass since they were hand made. A must for foodies and taco lovers everywhere.

This place is awesome. From the outside it seems like a little whole in the wall with not much to offer - but the food is incredible. There street tacos are the real thing. Incredible flavor and spices. Their salsa is a bit overwhelming but SO GOOD. Their Pastor Burrito is my favorite thing in all of Kansas City. Words... More

For those who want to have some REAL authentic Mexican food you must come to this restaurant! The food is some of the best i have ever tasted and i have been to plenty of Mexican restaurants (counting at home with home made Mexican food). The tortillas are made fresh right there by hand and the cook is constantly working... More

Enjoyed authentic street tacos. Very small simple restaurant. Walked 2 blocks from the hotel and glad there was a policy station across the street. Nice small park and transportation area but lots of men walking on the streets - felt a little unsafe in this area for walking. Food was excellent but had to make sure I did not look... More

the service was just okay and the neighborhood a bit shady. Probably look elsewhere before returning...
