Let's face it. In Johnstown you are either local or here on business. This place, a quick walk from the holiday inn, is the find of the area. Great food. The tacos are what everyone hollers about but for me the Poutine fries are where it's at. Also the service from the folks, including Kelsey the awesome bartender, is what... More

Stopped here for lunch and had a delicious buffalo chicken taco. There are 2 sizes glad I went with the small it was huge. Scott was working the bar he's a funny guy and makes you feel welcome. Looks like a fun place to hang out for a few drinks.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again: When a local highly recommends a place, I listen! We stopped in for a bite before the Brit Floyd show, and I'm glad we did. The food was amazing, the owner was very personable and courteous, and it's conveniently located just a couple blocks away from the War Memorial. I'll definitely... More

Amazing tacos. Thin, crisp homemade shell with an abundance of fillings. We had both the beef and chicken. One taco could feed 2 people.

I've been here a couple of times after hockey games & ordered the tacos - like other reviews the small is plenty large enough. We all enjoyed the atmosphere, good company, good drinks & Scott's personality. Can't wait until we get back!

I do not eat here enough... and I don't know why! Their food is bar type but it is so good! Go for an ice cold beer and have a taco... or 2. The salads are good too! I really have to make a point of coming here more often!

They are known for their tacos. The tacos aren't your typical hard corn shell taco. They are HUGE!! Made with a soft flour shell. A small fills a whole plate. I don't know anyone that did love anything they ordered. The atmosphere is fun and the owner is usually there talking with all the customers. On hockey game day u... More

The food, atmosphere, and staff are some of the best in Johnstown. Great place to go anytime, but especially before events at the War Memorial since its in short walking distance. The owners treat their costumers so well. It feels very homey and safe. If you go you have to try their burgers or tacos! Delicious!!!

A tiny little place-really a small bar-recommended to us by a local who we stopped on the street. Best tacos, ice cold draft beer, an way low prices.
