Had the shrimp, korean bulgogi, and the fish tacos. Each were a unique and tasty treat. Also had the salsa trio and it too was great. Not pricey at all. Would definitely go back!!

What a great place! Awesome variety of tacos, very non-traditional. It was a cool sunny day and we sat outside at the picnic tables. Great food.

I loved this unique and quick taco shop on the river. Great tacos with local, fresh ingredients. The Duck and Bahn Mi tacos were different and must try's.

Freaky looking place in River area but the food is outrageously delicious. Asian chicken tacos are to die for. Same for corn chowder soup. A must place

Warm weather. Delectable tacos. Cheerwine. What more could you want? ;-) I drove a bit out of my way during my vacation to come here. Although a little tricky to find, it was worth the trip! What attracted me to the shop was not only the rave reviews, but the unique taco selections. And the inside was everything an off-the-norm... More

I like a great variety of flavors when I eat, and this menu does not disappoint. I ate the Korean bulgogi and gyro tacos with a side of the poblano cheese grits. The tacos were delicious, and the grits were a little spicy for me and big enough to share for 2-3 people.

It's hard to get seating in the colder months, as most of the tables are outside, but once you grab a table - WOW - these tacos are amazing! I went for the first time this weekend, and I was blown away. So much flavor and such interesting combinations at this joint. I don't know what I expected going in,... More

Neat little taco place! Small, funky seating area w/ a limited amount of seats, so my suggestion is to get there early or at an off time. The service was fast, & the tacos are delicious! We also had a house margarita & chips & queso which were both yumm!!!

My wife and I and some friends ate here the evening of Saturday, February 14, 2015. This place is phenomenal! Many different kinds of tacos; definitely not your average taco stand. They've replaced the old standbys with some unique tacos. As a group, we sampled the Chips and 3 Salsas (the green and red are amazing) and the Chips and... More
