On Tuesday they have some taco deals although portions are not that big. I had heard a lot about the coconut margarita but it didn't taste coconut nor was special. I liked the second one I ordered though.

I love tacos. Anywhere I travel tacos are a must. Glad I stumbled upon this place. The bacon guacamole was amazing. Nice smoky taste with the crunch of bacon coupled with homemade chips. The carne asada tacos were also very flavourful.
