It is a modest and casual place. But the value is one of the best in Marin, and the taste is delicious!

There are lots to choose from. However, I do think you will be impressed with the prices and the taste!

Definitely a winner!

After fishing nearby, we were tired, hungry and not too fussy to get some good food. Lots, all kinds of folks, of locals getting in line for big burritos, help yourself tacos/sauces bar; good overhead menu with lots of selections. Great carnitas. If order plate combo, they bring it to your table according to your order number/stand. Will come back again!

Every time I go there , there is no soap in the bathroom and I see the staff use it and come out without washing hands, no one monitors that...also we have seen roaches on tables....we don't go there anymore, also TV has inappropriate shows on with too much violence, its suppose to be a "FAMILY" restaurant which includes children of all ages .

This isn't a gourmet taqueria by any means (the way Picante in Berkeley is), but for a solid burrito or taco, it's a great choice. Their carnitas are better than the carne asada, though. Great value.

This is a great place to grab a burrito, some tacos, or anythiing on the menu. We go to this place once or twice a month and it is very consistent and serves some authentic food. We spend 4-6 weeks a year in Mexico and love this place. The seafood cocktails are big and spicy. I get the tacos dorado al pastor. Five deep fried tacos with a salad (get the salad on a seperate plate) for about $6. The three types of salsa at the self serve chip bar are very good. The soft tacos are as close to what we get in Mexico as any place in the states. For under $20 you can fill up two people and have a beer with it. This isn't fine dining but is a good casual place to take a few friends. It gets VERY busy around lunch time so go early or wait until after 1pm. Cheers!
