Great chicken, pork, & beef street tacos in the heart of Old Town, just off the plaza. Very fresh and flavorful. Sandwiches also looked good.

There was a large wedding party on the patio, but Ashley and Alara took great care of us. Beautiful setting, cool summer breeze. I can second the fab food reviews.

Stopped in for a late lunch. Nice large dining room. Air conditioning wasn't working well. For a restaurant in Old Town thought the food and wait staff okay.

This restaurant has an excellent location in the Old Town Albuquerque with a spacious pet-friendly patio. The menu with daily specials consists of a nice variety of entrees with a southwestern "twist." The food tastes very fresh and delicious and the prices are reasonable. Both indoor restaurant and the patio have a very welcoming atmosphere.

Visiting old town on last day of business conference. Walked by this place and thought I would give it a try.

We each got the street tacos one of each. They were outstanding. Made perfectly. With a side of cilantro rice. Both the tacos and rice had a nice burn to them.

Definitely the place to go for tacos in town.
