We have been going to Rodrigo's Taco Shop for 20 yrs & each visit for my bean & cheese burrito has provided me with a smile on my face. I know that heaven will have a Rodrigo's 💖.

I always order here to go when I am in a pinch for food. They are open until 9pm so it's a good place to fall back to. Great tacos.
