Been going here for ages! Great food and prices. The salsa bar is also yummy! It's located next to In Shape Health Club, so it's a great post workout place.

This is one of those reliable, authentic taqueiras that always deliver. I like the tacos but when I feel really hungry I get the nachos grande. I pull off half the meat and save it for another meal. I can never finish those.

I meet a friend here for breakfast occasionally. While I wish they had breakfast tacos, they will accommodate anything I ask for...egg tacos? no problem. The staff is very personable and friendly. In my humble opinion, they make the best shrimp cocktails around!
