Fun place!

It's in the River Arts district. Tacos are very unique, tasty and reasonable. I had a crab one, my daughters enjoyed a fish ,a shrimp, and a potato mushroom taco. If you are more traditional, they served the usual tacos, too.Seating is on picnic tables in and out. It's just a fun place with good... read more

Mole duck and Gyro tacos were fine but under flavored and quite small as meals. The salsas were very good, but if used to add flavor to tacos they overpower. It is also kinda like a philly sub shop in that you feel you better know what you want before you approach.

Delicious and flavorful soft tacos catering to anyone's taste buds! They have a taco for everybody! Fresh ingredients and quick quick service. Even have outdoor seating in the back. Order 2 to 3 per person based on appetite. I would love to see more local drafts on tap.

There is a good selection of tacos, and I wanted to try them all. I had the steak and cheese, and my husband had 2 carnitas and 1 bulogi taco, and we loved them all. I don't really care for corn tortillas, and I wish they told me thats how they come, so I could have asked for flour, but... More

Yum! Must try the fish tacos, by far one of the best fish tacos I've ever had. This quaint little restaurant delivers a delicious bite. Chips and salsa are very good with several salsas for dipping. I will eat here again and again.

I was really expecting some great tacos and would have been better off at some of the local mexican places. Small dinning area in town, very average taste, the chips are high and not that good. Everything is suppose to inexpensive but I got 2 tacos, chips and salas and a sweet tea it was over $12.00. I could have... More

We had the shrimp, fish, and duck tacos. All were wonderful, our favorite was the shrimp. My kids had the chicken & bacon that was excellent also. I would recommend this to everyone, also its right next to the best hummas distributor in the south, roots.

Having paid $4.00 with tax for one taco, I was expecting something creative or larger than average. The tacos here are unfortunately quite average. The ones that sound creative don't always execute well. I won't be back. The local Mexican restaurants have better quality ingredients and a price tag that is more in line with standard taco prices. I wanted... More
