“Good and Casual”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

Food was great. Very fresh...loved the fresh jalapeno in the guac and burrito. Outdoor dining was casual and comfortable. Great place to go with the family, have a beer (byob) and relax.

“Good tacos!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

This place looks out of place in Avalon NJ, but I loved it. It's in a cheerful, brightly painted building that stands out here. I got two tacos, one with fish and the other with steak. Both were good. The meat was cooked to order and the fish tasted fresh. The vegetables and tortillas were good too. It's a step up from the steam-tray food at Chipotle.

“Dry, flavorless, and inedible.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2012

We spent $63 on take out from here and it all went in the trash when we got home. The fish tacos were so dry and flavorless, while the burrito was soaked and couldn't be picked up. Quesadilla didn't have much cheese and you don't get any sour cream or salsa for it. We literally threw it all out and heated up leftovers from the night before.

“Make sure to stop for Taco Happy Hour!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2012 via mobile

Most authentic Mexican in South Jersey. All meats are pulled, salsa is pico-esque, guacamole is so fresh. You can BYOT (bring your own Tequilla) for margaritas. Taco Happy Hour is from 3-4pm, $1.50 all tacos. The green hot sauce is not too hot, the habenero is extremely hot. Good attentive service. Will definitely return!
