We stop here while traveling South on 280. The service is quick and there is outdoor seating to enjoy after being in the car. The menu is great and there is a bar if you need a refreshment. The serve yourself taco chip bar is good too. I tend to have chicken quesadillas and this one is very good. Seems... More

If you crave for a quick and tasty burrito, go here. Just one parallel block from University Ace. Moist and moderate portions to satisfy your hunger.

I come here very regularly since I work close by. Always a good option for a fish taco or burritos. Lines could be long, but they move fast.

I love the soft tacos here. They are the best I've ever had. I have been here quite a few times, mostly for lunch. The Exxxtra hot sauce is really exceptional, and sets your mouth on fire.

Friendly staff, great "street" tacos. grilled or fried fish and the grilled vegetables w black bean tacos are consistently good. Go early or late or you will wait in the line out the door.

This is definitely one of the greatest places to get a quick bite in Palo Alto. The service is quick and the guy that takes the order is always friendly. The fish tacos are always a favorite but venturing beyond that is highly recommended. The burritos aren't the best in the bay but passable. The steak quesadillas are a little... More

Was there a month ago, on the last night of my Palo Alto visit. Wish it had been the first night, because I would have returned for every dinner of my brief stay. I preferred the chicken taco to their more "famous" fish version, but both were delicious, as were their salsas. Great casual atmosphere, very reasonable prices, excellent service.
