They have the most unusual assortment of tacos - not your traditional Mexican stuff. Things like pulled pork with kimchi; tempura shrimp; grilled chicken with cabbage slaw; etc. Great assortment of beers, both draft and bottled.

Family had lunch here and it was perfect. They accommodated our 14 month old grandson without a hitch and served up great eclectic tacos margaritas and brews to the adults. Definitely recommend the ahi tuna taco but be prepared for the wasabi based sauce !...More
