Was told about this place from an old coworker of mine. So ive wanted to try this place out for a while. The decor was neat. The staff didnt seem interested. I mean he was able to recommend which way to go when ordering but I just didnt get a good vibe from him. Or maybe I was just expecting... More

Great place for lunch, groups of friends, late night snack. Try #6, the salad with brisket.... Or the shrimp burrito. They have take out, too.

I have been here many times, is our spot to grab a real taco, the closest to an authentic mexican street taco. The "Tacos al Pastor" are the originals and delicious! Also love the Quesadilla (small) with Carnitas. The sauces are very tasty made from scratch. I tried last month something they invented as Special: "Platillo Volador" fantastic flavors and... More

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.
