TACOS SALSEADOS
Tacos Salseados are the modern "gourmet" tacos that are elaborated with only the freshest Queso Asadero from the north Pacific region of Mexico. The ingredients are submerged in the melting cheese. "A la Plancha" soaking the various flavors & spices as it cooks within, wrapping it in a handmade Artisan Tortilla from a Corn-Wheat mix and adding the signature array of salsas made in house daily

This was our second visit to MX, and while good, it was pretty much average and nothing like our first visit. Staff are very friendly and prompt. Prices a bit high for regular Mexican food, prices for Tapas were fair.
