A very fun vibe to this joint. My son and I just went for the tacos and they did not disappoint. I had the chorizo and he had the plantain and pork belly tacos. Both were excellent, as was the service. Enjoyed!

The guacamole was mediocre at best. The chips tasted like the frying oil was old and infused with other odd flavors. The pork tacos were cold and served on a single tortilla each. A second tortilla would have prevented them from falling apart.
