Fun Little Mexican Restaurant

More along the line of fast food, but the food was tasty and served quickly. Many choices on the menu that you can order your way no problem.

Inexpensive and satisfying dinner in a cool(wall murals are awesome) environment, great for a weeknight or while out and about.

This Florida chain is one of our favorites for a quick lunch. I always get "Dos tacos". They're really good ... tacos are crispy ... wide selection of sauces .... and they deliver to your table!! Can't wait to go again.

A restaurant which started on on of the U of F campuses, this place doesn't disappoint. The tacos a re huge and the sauces are great (I like the Thai sauce). We like the original Sarasota location on Tamiami Trail.

My favorite place to go when I am in Sarasota for business. Close location to the lab that I work at. Friendly and conscientious staff. My coke zero cup was never empty. I enjoy the wheat tacos and of course the chips and homemade salsa. Try the new Georgia Peach sauce!
