Liked: Food and vibrant atmosphere. Breakfast menu is AMAZING. The dinner/lunch stuff is really popular Disliked: too loud and a TON of little kids. Probably accounts for the noise. The kids are all happy and their parents are happy....but the kidless are in for it!

Tacos are great here. Lots of variety is offered here. I especially enjoy the breakfast tacos which are served all day! Typically a 10-15 minute wait.

I visit this location about once a month with my wife and 2 small kids and have not been disappointed. The tacos are great and a range of choices in terms of meats and toppings. It looks like they recently put some $ into a...More

I heard about it on a local news channel talking about them opening their 8th or 9th location and that it started as a truck business in 2009. That many locations in a short time span caught my attention. I went. I understood the rapid...More

The tacos here are of high quality, the service is fast, the place is crowded and the parking is extremely limited. We went here right at lunchtime on a FRI. First, like many other venues off Route 29 in Arlington, this place is in a...More
