We love the tacos at this place! Not all (we have tried chicken a couple of times, but the meat has been dry and not too much flavor to it). The handmade tortillas are absolutely worth the extra .25 cents and honestly 60% of a good taco (at least for us). Al pastor, carne asada and chorizo are our favorites; plenty of cilantro, onions and lime too. We love the roasted jalapeño and grilled scallions served traditionally with tacos, but here you will need to ask the servers. All very nice by the way.

I always have the carnitas tacos with regular tortillas. They are DELICIOSO! I love spicy so i add grilled jalapeños and sweet onions with the green and red sauce! Best authentic tacos in Atlanta and believe me, I've been EVERYWHERE! JUMBO Margarita is also very good... Sweet, but strong! If you decide to go... ENJOY

Very good authentic Mexican tacos. Affordable. We go there several time a year. Would love to one day try something else on the menu but the tacos are so good that I always end up ordering them.

First of all it is nice to find a real Mexican restaurant in an area filled with Asian cafes.
The very extensive menu take a long time to read sao start ofdfd with a Margurita and you will not minds. Dozens of taco filings that you can choose to customize and dozens of other foods from appetizers to deserts, all with an authentic Mexican taste.
