I read in reviews that the ordering was confusing and tried to be prepared. But, I had a heck of a time ordering. You get into a different line for each thing you want to order and it isn't really clear. They are so busy that you really don't have the luxury of time to ask what each line is.... More

This restaurant is usually very busy and for good reason. These are better than any taco ive ever had. The asada and pastor which i had were great and they have lost of guacamole. Dont be scared of the line of waiting people as they are fast and you wont regret eating there.

No nonsense traditional mexican food. Lines go by quick. The fillings include the traditional meats like chicken, carnitas, steak, but also unusual ones like tongue, brains and veal's head. The food is fresh and tasty.

Place looks very busy but they're pretty fast on giving you what you order. It's ok but not the best. I heard things about this place so I wanted to try it out and I wasn't impress with their food. Overall employees were helpful and cashier very friendly so that's why I'm giving them average on my review.

We went to this place on my husband's desire. At first it was very overwhelming to me as it was very crowded and busy. Once I got the understanding of how the lines worked and figured out what I wanted, it was a breeze. You will need a minimal working knowledge of Spanish. We ate here several times while in... More

Very busy but efficient. Taco were yummy and the pricing was spot on. Lots of variety. Mexican candy was a nice way to finish off the meal. 4 tacos were enough for lunch. The Mexican Soda was enjoyable. Don't buy a can of pop.
