Ordered online for lunch while passing through Albuquerque on the train. However, when we went to collect our order they hadn’t received it. No matter! Showed the owner the online confirmation and he and his crew leapt into action and cooked everything there and then...for us, no questions asked. 10/10 for service! Tacos were amazing: super fresh, loads of flavour, generous portions, fresh homemade corn tortillas! The guacamole and the salsa both had nice heat and the chips were really fresh and crisp too! We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch and would definitely recommend eating here!More

Thank you for your review. truly appreciated. Also thank you for your patience, these are weird times and sometimes, as in your case, technology is not always cooperative. I am glad we were able to meet and exceed your expectations. Thank you

The tacos with their amazing names are delicious. We ordered for pickup/take out and it was a smooth process to order online and pick up. Very close to the Hotel Andaluz, which is nice if you are staying there. Our brief interaction with the staff...was good as well.More

These tacos are delicious! We had 12 different ones between the 4 of us and we each had a hard time deciding our favorite. They were all so good. And the names were all really entertaining. Also plenty of delicious vegan options. Staff was really...helpful, patient and friendly.More

Visiting Albuquerque for a work trip and found this new restaurant! It was So delicious with so many options for every food type!!! They have put such a great twist on serving the food that doesn’t allow for as much plastic and paper waste, which...I appreciated a lot too! Definitely worth going to and going back for seconds!More

This place is awesome! We are so thrilled to have found this place! We parked in the underground lot and they were able to validate! They have delightful names for their tacos, very witty and with social commentary. I tried "the republican" and my fiancé...got the "death by tacos." We were lucky enough to have the owner there to walk us through the menu. We got calabacitas as one our sides and it was amazing! All of the tacos were delicious! They are delivered on a wooden tray and you were able to dress them yourself with the lime juice, pickled onions, Mexican cheese, tomato's and cabbage. The pork was really good as was the steak, the tandoori chicken was out of this world! We saved the fish taco for last (at the owner's recommendation.) We were glad we did! It was amazing and so much wonderful flavor, it is HOT! But also delicious, do save it for last, it is a great finish and your mouth will be on fire! The owner chatted with us about the history of Mexican food which was delightful and he is very knowledgeable! This place is the bomb! They also have a free chips and salsa bar with your meal, with amazing flavorful salsa. We found our new favorite taqueria!More

We took advantage of their Friday happy hour: 5 tacos and a pitcher of beer for $20. The menu features several great-sounding tacos and the five we had were freshly prepared and tasted delicious. Also the beer, stout, was good.

If you are looking for something different in your taco game, this is it. The flavors are fab, the wine list is short but excellent selections and a they have a decent set of taps. If you are feeling adventurous go for the Death By...Taco. While spicy, they aren’t just hot for heats sake, they taste good too. Excited to see some Indian flavors included with the Tandoori, love to see more of that. Can’t wait to try brunch. It does have a more casual atmosphere, order at the counter, plastic cups type but delicious nonetheless.More

Enjoyed lunch at this new spot in downtown ABQ. Every taco we had was delicious and the serving platters w/ toppings are very cool. Will be going back many times. Walkable from anywhere downtown and right across from the new bus stop.

1) Parking in garage next door, $8 max for day. $1 a half hour. 2) Check the specials board. Also look at menu card; might be a promotion you’d like. 3) Get the Executive Privilege. Note: might not be enough for big guy. You might...need a soup or a burrito. If you’re tasting 6 tacos over two EPs with a loved one, grab a foil wrap to use as a giant placemat to catch your yummies. 4) While you wait, get chips and choice of salsa from free bar. 5) Await nice servers. 6) Consume excellence.More
