The carry-out only place on S. Lamar is still better than the newer one on S First. Go for tacos - they use the grilled chicken in three different tacos that are all good. We put it on the list of places when visitors come...More

Stopped by to get a quick bite. Asked for a side of guacamole, was charged $8. Asked for 'side' price, got it for $4. That's fine. But looked at bill and kids tacos were priced at $2.89 but was charged $4 for each. Not cool....More
