Awesome Choices! Unique Combinations!

I was introduced to some very unusual taco combinations. I tried two steak tacos first. They were delicious. With generous amounts of grilled steak, shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes and sauce served on soft corn tortilla shells. Then I got adventurous I tried a duck taco and a pork belly taco with... read more

Came here for lunch based on online reviews and it was just a-ok. Tacos were good, but nothing to boast about! Be prepared to try different tacos that aren't really available anywhere else, but all and all, it was just an ok taco experience. Not even sure if I would go back.

Second time we have eaten there. Not disappointed! Good quick place to eat. It was a bit crowded but got our meal quickly. Not a place to linger but when you have other plans for the evening.

My first time here but it wont be my last. Interesting choices of tacos. I had the fish and the crab ... Both succulent. Dog friendly and relaxed atmosphere.

Ate here twice and loved it both times - some tacos are spectacular while others are just very, very good. The mole duck is fantastic, as is the queso dip. Try and go at a slightly "off" time to avoid long lines.

The tacos were delicious. They are decent-sized but not huge. We got a variety and were definitely pleased with all of them. Our favorite was the fish. Would definitely recommend eating here.

The pork belly taco with pickled watermelon rind was a big hit, as were the fish tacos and the Korean beef variety. Peach sangria was refreshing and tasty. Parking in the Rover District is always interesting but we were able to find a spot fairly close when we saw that their lot was full.

I'm not sure what the six of us were missing but were were not "over the top" about this place. They do have fresh food and many "different" selections like the Thai peanut taco, but none of us thought it rated up with the hype. Service was fast even though the place was crowed, however, like another reviewer, we felt... More

Great variety, delicious food and drinks, indoor and outdoor seating. What's not to like? There were six of us, and we all ordered different taco combinations. Every one of us LOVED our dinners! I had their scrumptious Thai Chicken taco which had a mango salsa on top, and one was filling enough for me. The good news is that if... More
