Located in a residential area, not easy to find. Just a few tables. Tac queries style food. We had tortas de Carne asada. The bread was amazing. The sandwiches tasted great. About 6.00. Very reasonable. Clean. Good service. We will definitely be back

I eat here now and again when in Gainesville for their Tortas. I have not tried much else since the tortas are so delicious. I highly recommend taking a lunch break here. It is a very highly respected staple in this community.
