Small and quaint. Probably one of the best tacos I’ve ever had!! I had tried the shrimp taco, the Baja taco and the brisket. All of them offered a unique taste! 1 taco is large enough for a serving. My favorite was the shrimp taco!...More

I enjoyed the hurricane taco. My bf did not care for the bacon wrapped shrimp taco. FYI: the tacos are one large taco in a large tortilla. Good portions but nothing to write home about. Flavored mojitos were good.
