Amazing tacos

This place serves truly authentic mexican tacos. I haven't tried any of their other items besides the chips and salsa because I'm unwilling to part from the tacos! They are relatively small tacos, made on corn tortillas, so I would suggest ordering at least 3 or 4. My favorite fillers include... read more

Hate this restaurant. They always get our orders wrong. They obiiously suck at customer service. Some of the workers look they they don't ever give a damn about their job.

Great prices, guacamole was great as we're the burritos. The nachos were made with cheese whiz, so were a disappointment. Have Mexican Coke and big selection of Jarrito flavors.

Seems very authentic. The portion sizes are great and the price is perfect. Mexican sodas & cokes available. Get a burrito, I like chicken but I've never been disappointed with any of the proteins. Unique fare like cow tongue and tripe, too. I haven't tried but they have it!

You know it's authentic when that's where local Latinos go for home cooking. Great selection of meats for tacos. I had chorizo tacos and asada tacos. They were both excellent. Great authentic sauces... None of that Americanized tomato based crap!

The staff is incredibly friendly, the prices are great, and the tacos are incredibly authentic. FYI, the tacos are tastier than the burritos.

Love the food there and will definitely go back! We ordered a bunch of tacos and some shrimp cocktail and they were all very good. Big variety on tacos and they were all great!

Very authentic Mexican taqueria style food. The place was very busy for a good reason! If you want some spectacular Mexican food this is the place to go! Very reasonable prices and very friendly staff as well. My wife and I went for lunch and the place had a very steady stream of people then tire time we were there,but... More

Everything I've had here has been delicious. A colleague from Mexico tells me that this place is the closest he can get to getting tacos from street vendors in Guadalajara. Enough said.
