If you like the tacos in Algodones, you'll like these, and the price is pretty similar. We've been several times and have had the beef, chicken, fish and shrimp tacos. Shrimp are probably the best of those. Family run, and cash only.

Found out it must be a food truck. Disappointing to drive around looking for the restaurant then realizing there isn’t one.

Best taco's this side of the border. Real soul food. Not a lot of the things you may be used to but, hey for $2.00 the taco's are fast, seasoned well and good.
