Recommend the fish or the lamb gyro tacos. Both were very tasty. Sangria was very sweet. Excellent place to stop and have a bite when in the river art district.

My favorite place in town! You can’t go wrong with any option...but the Bangkok Shrimp is truly the best! Great service...always willing to accommodate my picky children. Delicious chips and quest...and the Mexican chocolate dessert is a must have, if you saved room!

Enjoyed the tacos and outdoor seating….wonderful place in the River Arts District to get a quick, decent meal. Friendly service. The beef bulgogi, duck and buffalo chicken tacos were the winners of the evening.

Most of their tacos are about $3.50. Only the duck taco is more; $5.75 from what I recall. You get two white corn wraps per taco. You could split the filling to make two tacos out of one.
