We have started coming here more often since the Family Run Acapulco Café on Carson Street closed down. The staff is always friendly and works hard to keep their customers happy. We greatly appreciate this. Great priced food and a nice selection on the menu. Our favorites are combo plates and the Shrimp tostada with a side of guacamole. YUM!

When I'm in town I always make it a point to stop in and get a bite to eat. Very good fresh food. tip, if you don't want to wait in line just order a bean and cheese burrito, they always keep some ready made, much faster.

There are three El b js near our house. We generally go there and get the 12 tacos. The fry the shell, fill it with meat, then grill it. Then they add the lettuce and cheese. There is much meat and it's very tasty. I prefer these tacos to tito tacos. My wife prefers the salsa at titos. All in... More

I had a late lunch here yesterday. It wasn't too busy. It's located in a strip mall. Seated promptly and drinks came quickly. Tea was watered down though. You receive chips and a very good salsa. I had a combo plate which included a shredded beef taco, cheese enchilada, and frijoles. It was on two plates. I didn't taste the... More

Been here 3 times and I always liked it. Servings are filling. They give chips and salsa while you wait for your order.

I don't know if all of these restaurants are as bad as this one, but it was a bad experience. Ordered tosada and the tortilla was soggy and it was 90% lettuce. Also got a bean enchilada which had no flavor and a chicken taco. The taco did have a ton of meat. Overall wished I had gone somewhere else.
