Reviewed February 21, 2014

Located on a corner of 5th Avenue, this little place is an inexpensive tasty source for street tacos. Best deal on la Avenida. They have an extensive array of salsas and toppings and the beer is cold. Unlike another reviewer, I actually like it when the employees engage me in conversation rather than sullenly slap your food on your plate. The adjacent cigar store is a nonissue unless you are determined to make it one. They actually do have bathrooms although it's a bit of a walk up some stairs. Nice people and good food at good prices.

We stopped here for a cool down drink, and ended up getting the sea food platter. It was fresh and good. Service was quick, and friendly. We stayed outside in the patio, it was small but served its purpose. Only one thing, they didn't have a washroom. Had to take my little nephew down to a hotel to use the one there. It was strange.
They have a dipping sauce for the nachos and pita bread, called "Maldita" , spicy hot... you have to try it if you like spicy.
