Its casual, simple, consistent, and delicious. I have had just about everything on their menu from enchiladas to tacos to pazole. Usually a short wait, fast service. Can get in and out at lunch within 30-40 minutes. The old stand-by is the regular chicken burrito. But their tacos al pastor are very good as well as their supreme quesadilla (Wife's... More

The tacos were good. I was surprised to find a rajas plate on their menu so I decided to try it.... but they rajas were sauté instead of grill and peel so they were hard and not tasteful .

Three of us ate here late one night and were very satisfied with the meal. Carne asada, pastor and fish tacos were very good. Buy one get one free beer was great!

I've tried a couple other items which were also good but the AL Pastor is so delish I can't pass it up. The have beer and wine also and nice sidewalk seating. Oscar is... More

My husband had the carne asada burrito-it was huge and he said it was pretty good; I had the chicken enchiladas and they were dry, no flavor to the chicken; and the tortillas were not "grilled" or softened, just like right out of the bag.....dunno. The beans and rice were okay, nothing to write home about. Enjoyed eating outside except... More

If you are looking for great Mexican food this is it! Love the variety on the menu and the friendly customer service. It's tough to find a seat inside during peak hours but outside dining is always a good option.
