Food was amazing especially the al pastor tacos. Lines can get long and the heat almost unbearable but ask for a table inside near a fan and enjoy a delicious affordable meal with great service❤️.

This small but quaint restaurant serves excellent Mexican food. The restaurant is very small but there are tables outside on the sidewalk. Get there at an off-dinner time as it gets really crowded during normal dinner hours.

Gets busy but worth it! I recommend tacos al pastor. Delicious! If you don’t mind the wait, it’s a great option.

There is street parking but most people walk to it. Really there is minimal need for a car in PV at all.

Worth every penny. The small slice of pineapple ads that small gesture of originality. Indeed I thought the pineapple infused style salsa they bring would add a unique flavour. Little did I know that this was the hottest of... More

No the tacos are plain. They give you at least 4 different sauces to put on them and they go from mild to HOT. They will also tell you which sauce is which. The HOT is HOT. If this helped please mark such on TA
