As long as you get what you pay for, it is all good. This is not gourmet food, but when we have hungry labor workers and we have to finish a job, this is our go to place, licated just down the street.

In a strip mall on a busy street. Great. Simple. Typical taqueria atmosphere. No fuss; plain tables. Outstanding food.

I'm a fan of the vegetarian burrito. Too big for me to finish in one sitting, though. Parking can be tough at lunchtime, Mondays are usually the easiest, as another popular restaurant is closed Mondays.

So we've been to Aptos St BBQ and Manuels many times but hands down if you want flavorful pork this is the place. May I recommend it in a torta. It was so tasty and reasonable at $8 we got it twice in a row....More

Nothing fancy. Home cooked flavor. Eat in or takeout. Carnitas and al pastor my favs. Some really go for the shrimp fajitas. Platos are mucho food. Salsa bar has variety.
