Hooked on da crack

Great little dive for a lunch stop. Got lucky because it was not crowded when I went. Had the pork tacos. Super tasty, fresh ingredients, the beans and rice were good too. Prices were not bad for the quality of food here. Gotta check it out.

The food was ok not authentic then maybe we're bias in the fact we eat this almost everyday, would not go back but that's not a reflection on them it's just our taste are different!

Sorry. I really wanted to like this place. We're from the SF Bay Area and ruined for killer awesome taqueria tacos. This just wasn't up to snuff. Even if they'd gotten our order right, which they did not, it wouldn't have been good. Meat was too bland.

I ordered the fish of the day special in a bowl. To my delight the day's catch was Ahi and they grilled it with a spicy rub. Bowl is almost enough for two and was $12 (more than regular bowls because of the fish.) We waited a long time but it was worth the wait (& it was lunch time... More

This was our best take-out experience of our trip. We were able to find the menu on yelp, call in what we wanted and when we showed up to the small strip mall - it was all ready. Nice sized portions (good for lunch the next day) and very delicious!

Interesting little "crack" in the wall, serving lunches. We ate barbecue beef, very spicy! Our friends ate some sort of huge concoction they said was tasty.

Best burritos! We had shredded chicken and shredded beef. Worth the wait. There is very little seating and parking is tight.

Great little place for a quick Mexican meal, Hawaiin style. It's all takeout, just like many of the practical local spots. Order and eat in your car or take to go. We tried the fish of the day bowl with rice and beans and guacamole. Fantastic! I think the fish was mahimahi with a volcanic rub. The guac was amazing.

Good, basic burritos at a reasonable price - the reasonable price is a rarity in the area. My husband thought his beef burrito was too spicy. I thought my vegetarian burrito was too mild. :-) We are a diverse family. Kids liked the pinto bean and cheese burritos

Good food for a "cheaper" family meal. We grabbed dinner to go and ate at the harbor to watch the sun set. We got Beef Bowls, Quesada, and a Burrito for dinner with chips and guacamole. The quac was not up to So Cal standards but was ok (even if the menu says it is excellent). The dinners were good... More
