Simple, cheap, average. It's hard to come back here when I can get to Cali n Titos, Taqueria del Sol, and Sr. Sol in town.

taco stand is pretty typical but offers a variety of taco's and great service. They use fresh ingredients and have fast service!! food is very cheap and o so yummy. 3 locations in town all have great seating and great food. By far the best taco's!!! it something about the shell and cheese the use that sets it off!!!
