I love this little hole in the wall. I was referred here by a friend who told me about their tacos. I love soft tacos but good deep fried tacos are hard to find. La Promesa has the best!

Very small place, definitely family run. We ordered shredded beef taquitos and cheese enchiladas. The taquitos were good, covered with guacamole and sour cream. Their vanilla and peanut butter cookies were very good. Ginny Z
