This place serves tacos on flour or corn tortillas with nothing on them. You get to choose what you want at the taco fillings bar. There’s several kinds of salsa, avocado sauce and chopped onions and cilantro. Good taco bar!

While they don't have consistent days when they are open (9amish to 2ish) you stop in even if you aren't hungry , that's how good these fish tacos are. He also has carne asada and tripe but they don't hold a candle to the fish
