They guy behind the counter taking orders take for granted that you've been a local since day one. He does not explain, but give you the menu so you go figure things out. Food was barely OK. If you are into tacos, go to Taco Bell.

These are the owners of Charm City Burger, and they seem to know how to put together a successful restaurant. This is more of a fast food joint, but the food is really good. Service is slow, so don't think you'll be out of there quickly. But it's worth a try.

We were looking for mexican food but this is more like tijuana flats-chipoltes mixed together with an old time mexican wrestling theme. The menu is confusing but cute after you study it for a while. Tried the tacos al carbon which had good flavor but we're dry. The burrito had good flavors and the queso cheese was good with the... More

A Mexican wrestling-themed counter-service joint with their own gourmet take on Mexico City street-style tacos. Great ambiance, fantastic food. The nachos are a great value and are amazing. I highly recommend the roasted corn, also.

The Southern Gent is a very tasty staple street taco here. However, I always make a point to try the special taco of the day (soft). They are a buck or so more than the menu tacos, but often worth it as a great way to discover some unique flavours. If they have pork belly, make sure you hop on... More

My husband and I stopped here for a couple tacos. We tried the fish, pulled pork and cubano. I thought the fish was good, he thought it was a little fishy. He liked the cubano the best which was a special. They didn't come with anything. We had a couple beers. You order at the register and then pick up... More
