If you are out and can't make up your mind, you can't go wrong here. Tuesday's and Thursday's are $1.00 taco nights.

Unkept dining area. Several dirty tables and food on the floor. Spoiled carrots and jalapeños. The food tasted far from good and much more americanized. The rice and beans tasted like it came straight from a can. We will not be coming back.

$1.00 tacos every Tuesday and Thursday, what's not to like? A great place for carry out. The restaurant is clean but noisy. If you go in later, the floors get cleaned while your eating, and the smell of disenfectant doesn't enhance the flavor of the food. They have chili relleno burritos! and they are excellent, as are the chorizo sopes.... More

Although the food is good and the service is fast, I found it to be a bit salty; thus an average rating from me.
