Funky tacos

What a funky little taco shop. The Californian Burrito was very good. The decor makes this place special and the tacos are good too. It can get busy so come early otherwise seating can be difficult. Would definitely try this joint again.

This was my last meal before flying out. I went because it was so well rated, but honestly surprised. I had the California burrito and the texture of the steak and shrimp together with fries and guacamole was too much. The secret sauce tasted good, if there had been more of it. I had better fish tacos elsewhere during my... More

They serve tacos that you won't find on any other menu, such as the Tap Me Out taco filled with grilled chicken or veggies, melted cheese and poblano sauce. I love that one but my favorite is the Surf & Turf with steak, shrimp and avocado. This place is small and the line to order at the counter is out... More

Just mediocre. I have had way better tacos and burritos in the San Francisco Bay Area. If you must try this place DO NOT WAIT IN LINE, call ahead, place your order, pass everyone stupid enough to wait hours in line and take it to the beach...I had the surf and turf burrito and the meat was bland, and the...

I'm visiting town, a friend took me here. There was a line, and most of the seats were taken, but everything moved fast and we didn't have to wait long for our food. I had a steak taco and veggie quesadilla. The quesadilla was big, I wasn't able to finish it after eating the taco. Everything sounded good, I would... More

Cool place with great Burrito... or should we say Burro or Burrote due to its size... must at least go once to see the decorations...

Terrible customer service. I called on the phone to ask if they deliver. She said there's a service. I asked what the service is called and she said the name but I couldn't understand what she said so she said "ugh oh my god" hung up on me.

Went here with friends today we waited in line for about 20 minutes. And it was so worth the wait I ordered the surf n turf burrito and a drink there were many choices for drinks but no fresh brewed ice tea that would be my one complaint... But the burrito was so fantastic they still get a perfect 5... More

love the food, the ambiance might be a bit over the top for some, as well as the usual wait to get served, very popular with locals so that should tell you a lot
