We saw some bad reviews and we're nearly scared off. The food was pretty good. We left happy. The Taquitos were our favourite. The fish tacos were also really good. Just a cheap eats place, cool atmosphere.

Love the Guacamole and the Tacos Al Pastor along with a few cold Saigon Special beers. It can be a little noisy and hot on the outside. Plenty of air conditioned seating.

Food was great, we had the taco combo and loved it. Tacos tasted really nice and fresh . The nachos was too cheesy for my taste but still tasted really good. Sauces and guacamole was also delicious. Service was at par, but not outstanding in...More

Great location (across from the Acoustic Cafe). Open air seating. I had their Taco Plate, four small tacos, enough to be satisfied. Very clean, with good service. Average prices for this area.
