I love that they are very authentic! It's hard to find a good taco in this area but when ever I need a taste of a home made taco or burrito they never disappoint. I recommend the steak salad and the Cuban tacos. I must say it is a bit high in the price range and I cant have it... More

This is a good place to grab a quick lunch, as I did this day. Downscale interior but with a neat and interesting wrestling motif. I'm not into wrestling, but I found the theme attractive. I went with the chicken burrito. It was pretty good and was of good size. The meal didn't come with chips and salsa, but I... More

The food was good and the atmosphere was really nice. I sat outside and ate my tacos and tamales. The green sauce was delicious.

Great Flavors, I like that they don't automatically include the sour cream. Without the sour cream, it lets all the other flavors come through. I wish there would have been more Carne Asada included, the meat was tasty and it was shy of a few more pieces. I would definitely try the bowl next time I heard it was very... More

Food was ok. Wouldn't return or recommend it to friends. Guess I'll continue my quest for great food. Folks taking orders were not very welcoming. "Dead" feel to the restaurant.

Went for lunch and overall it was very good. I had the delicious pork belly taco, plus the pork with pineapple taco and the pulled pork taco. Those two were very good but a bit greasy. The sweet plantains were also very good. The menu is very confusing because of the graphics and layout which makes order a bit hard.... More

The place is clean and music nice service marginal and not worth a drive out of your way. The $26 was high for what you got. Fish taco good but stingy in the fish and the noted pork belly taco not so notable and cold when asked if it was suppose to be cold we were told no that was... More

Lunch with a couple colleagues at this little odd establishment. Strangely named Mexican street food restaurant. A board with several taco specials of the day along with the regular menu. The place was highly recommended by one of the members of our party who guided us through the experience. We each ordered 3-4 tacos at the counter, got a fountain... More
