it is quick and easy. The prices are reasonable. This place has been on North Oak Trafficway forever. Come and try it with your kids and neighbors' kids. We had grown kids in for the holidays and that was the first place we went.

This is the place to go if you are craving fried food. Tacos are very unusual, they have powdered cheese on em. But don’t let that scare you away....they are surprisingly really good.

Drove past it at first but decided to give it a chance and glad I did. When I asked the order taker for her suggestion, she said to get the taco meat and cheese. She suggested two as they are small and she was right....More

The tacos were tasty, but different. They have powdered cheese on them, but they taste pretty good. The corn nuggets were excellent with and without the nacho cheese dipping sauce, and the apple stix were very good. Price seemed a bit high. I got 4...More

Deep fried tacos (they have other items) served with an orange powdered cheese substance. They are about $1.29 a piece and small. Greasy, deep fried tacos that for some odd reason, we cannot get enough of them! A local favorite. Ice cream is pretty good...More
