The food is a little on the pricey side, but is authentic and delicious. I had the beef burrito, two beers and guacamole, which came to 3000 yen. Outstanding tequila menu! Friendly service (the waiter speaks Japanese, Spanish and English) and we didn't have to...More

Best tacos you will find in Japan. Handmade tortillas. Cheap as hell on Tuesdays. Also packed! All beer and cocktails ¥500. Whoa! The owner Wily likes to be tickled.
