Great menu. Very reasonable pricing for everything, especially tacos. Expect having leftovers to take with you. Excellent grilled foods. Make this your stop for tacos al pastor.

The chorizo tacos are amazing, and the guacamole is fresh - we popped in because we found it recommended online and we were nearby, and came back for casual eats during our trip a couple of times.

Sorry, didn't see this until now. We do mostly walking and have stayed three times within a half block of the New Elements and don't think you need to take a taxi. We do suggest you show up before 530 to avoid a wait, as... More
