Their Tijuana-style carne asada tacos are the bomb, their salsa bar is well stocked, they have cold beer, you can sit inside or out on their large patio, and my wife likes their taco salad.

Great food and location. A perfect weekend morning is to walk the El Dorado Trail and stop in here for breakfast afterwards. Awesome huevos rancheros. Posole and menudo on the weekends. Very clean and has outdoor seating.

We're locals so we come here pretty often, very convenient location and of course we wouldn't be back again and again if the food sucks, right? :) My husband and I like the super burritos, its huge so we always split it. One thing that we hope they will pay attention to is, please do not sweep very close to... More

A favorite place for Mexican food. A large selection, great salsa bar, and very affordable. They even have a good variety of dishes with fish. I love their taco salads.

This is a very clean and well operated Taqueria. The choices are abundant, service is fast and friendly. Priced right, even the cerveza's are not over priced.
