Stopped in to try this tiny spot. Had the taco de pollo, it was interesting. Instead of a shred they used cubed chicken. Taste was amazing. Hot salsa was 🔥delicious. A little pricy at $6/taco, but I would definitely return.

You must go! The food is delicious and inexpensive. There is very limited seating and it is packed but worth it. My kids loved the fish tacos.
