Restaurant details
Reviewed February 6, 2012

I love the flavors of the food here but every time I get little bits of charcoaled meat off the dirty grill. They also need to trim the fat better. I have to thoroughly pick thought the food before I feel comfortable eating it. The price just isn't low enough for the low quality control. If they would clean a little more this would be a great restaurant....

Get the Carnita's tacos - they are the best, located next to the Bowling Alley

Stopped in for a quick lunch of Fish Tacos. Turned out to be a slow lunch of small, salty, fish tacos and slow service. No chips and salsa at the table. This place is just ok, don't expect much.

The owner started out with a taco truck but was hounded to do more catering, she she parked the truck and is now serving up amazing food by Hwy80 in Auburn.

If you are lucky, Maria will great you and take your order. She loves to give you suggestions for what's good that day.

If you are looking for an upscale seating area, keep driving. It doesn't bother my family in the least. She does have some outdoor seats, though, so that's great in the summer or if you are traveling with a dog. (Although, please check before hand, as I'm not certain if they are allowed - I'm just assuming.)
