Great location-- we grabbed a table outside and much to our surprise, they delivered our order to us. Teen son says the torta (#10 asada) may have been the best sandwich he's ever had and the fish taco was super simple, but the star of...More

Tacos were great! A diverse menu with a little something for everyone. Chips and quest, corn on the cob, sandwiches, tacos....you name it. The tacos are a little on the pricey side (~$3.99). Lunch special could be more value added (suggest 2 tacos and a...More

Small counter service place. Food lives up to the hype. Try #4 carnitas taco and corn on the cob. Hubby and son loved their sandwiches. Beer is a bonus.

Would have gave 4 stars but, the nachos didn't have anything but the cheese dip. No Pico , no chicken , no jalapeño etc just cheese and chips so it was kind of disappointing. The tacos were great as always.

Certainly didn't expect the quality and outstanding flavor from a place where you order at the counter and then they hand you a number. AWESOME! We had a variety of the tacos, guacamole and queso and everything was THE BEST. Plus, just seeing what was...More
