Their tacos de adobada & tacos al pastor are unreal! They are mouth-watering & the best I’ve ever had! I especially love the avocado & crema sauce that they put on top of the tacos de adobada/al pastor. Their tacos de carne asada are also delicious, but, personally, not as good as the others.

Unfortunately, the set-up of the restaurant is not very conventional—you stand in specific lines for your food (one line for carne asada, another line for al pastor, etc.) and then you have to wait in another line to pay and buy your drinks. If you’re by yourself and you want to try different tacos, I can only imagine how challenging it would be to wait so long in different lines. If you come with a large group, it’s best to split up to save time. This place gets super busy & indoor seating is limited. They have outdoor seating with umbrellas as well, but who can really enjoy their meal under the blazing sun?! Definitely a must-eat!

A no frills authentic street tacos in a quick counter order restaurant! you order your tacos with just about any type of meat, they fix it in front of you, you go to the register to pay, and IF there is room at a table you can sit and eat in, I would suggest plan on take out! Affordable great taste!

Went to the boulevard location and yes there was QUITE the line but having read reviews about this place, we were prepared for that. We bought some of the beef and some of the pork tacos. The pork ones were the BEST. This place will likely not be known for it's cleanliness or welcoming atmosphere, but if you're prepared for it, the food is excellent and we left feeling full and happy. I would say just be prepared for what to expect and how to order your food (different lines for different proteins) and you won't be dissapointed!

It may have just been the wrong choice but we had the steak tacos on corn tortilla. The flavor was rather bland and had an odd taste. I would return again to give it another chance but definitely get the spicy pork on flour tortilla. The service was friendly and the prices were more than fair.

You can tell this place is authentic, filled with locals and lineups. Food is fantastic and good value. A bit chaotic, if you don't know what you are doing, just line up and watch what others are ordering.
