Always a line up

There is always a line-up to get into this amazing pace. It is fast food Mexican Style. My favourite is the el pastor. Sauces are excellent.

get here early or there will be a wait! it's a high energy kind of hole in the wall, so if you're expecting a slow, leisurely paced dinner, this is not the place for you! I had the el pastor which were very yummy as was my margarita!! really really good cheap eats; tacos are on the smaller side, so... More

Al pastor tacos were excellent. Could eat here many times...we also ordered the fondu with chorizo and realized we ordered way too much food. Sauces that come on every table were excellent....mango habanero was amazing.

Really good restaurant, went last Saturday and was amazed by the excellent service, all employees seemed to speak English and was a great family experience and we all enjoyed a good atmosphere and delicious tacos. I ate the tacos al pastor, I ordered horchata, it was great and all the rest of the family asked for margaritas and enjoyed them.... More

These tacos are the best don't hesitate go check the place out! it's a small location but it's worth it the smoke in the air the chatter of the people crammed into the tiny venue and the shops and local music happening around the area! worth it!!

We asked one of the cab drivers where to find the best tacos and he pointed us here. And man was he right! Hands down best tacos I've had. Crowded, inexpensive and unbelievably delicious.

First I have to say that due to the fact that there are so many restaurants in PV my husband and I made a decision that we would not eat at the same place twice while we were there on our ten day vacation. That went out the window after we ate here! We ended up eating here three times... More

No visit to PV is complete without a visit here but be prepared to wait. Its not a big place with more seating on the street than inside but queuing is all part of the experience. Centrally located and looks to be a favourite amongst locals as well as tourists.
