Great service and good prices

Very friendly staff. The food tastes really good and from what I was told it is authentic. My kids had beef tongue and loved it. My husband and I tried the tripe soup. It was quite tasty but the smell was too strong for us so it was hard to enjoy it. I would say the food is a little... read more

After reading other reviews, we found our own experience a little disappointing. We arrived about an hour before closing and the dining area was empty but rather messy---unwiped tables, dirty floor. The food is definitely authentic (I ordered the beef tongue taco...haven't seen those since eating at a taquiera in L.A) and good, but really spicy. Only complaint was our... More

My favorite are the tortas. The nachos aren't that bad either, they just don't have the typical cheese dip we know and love. The drive thru is the super convenient but this isn't "fast food" so don't be upset if you're not in and out in 90 seconds.

The best place to go for authentic food. Fantastic food every time! Don't be afraid of the outside, taco al pastor is highly recommended!

Take you food out as the seating here is some of the most uncomfortable I have ever seen. Have been here several times and had many different meals, but the tacos are great and the the sauces are wonderful. Try this for fun and adventure. Food is cheap

Overheard someone talking about this place so I drove by. I was a little nervous about going alone so I took a co-worker. Silly me, judging a book by its cover. GREAT food, Very authentic. Folks could not have been nicer. I will definitely go back alone :)

Hello folks...i found this place while I was driving around looking for something differant. I got the chorizo and egg taco..a pork taco..a taco salad and 2 tamales. Everything was fantastic except for the tamales..they were doughy and flavorless. But the rest was very good..I would recomend trying it.
