The food was good and the service was fast but there are better tacos in town. This place is a chain. There's a line up down the street to eat here but less busy/cheaper/friendlier local places are nearby.

This is a hopping place! Food is amazing and the service is quick for how busy they are. Don’t be discouraged if you see a line for a seat, the turn around for a table is pretty fast. We went here twice in 9 days!!...More

Great food and very affordable. We had the pork and chicken tacos. Service was great and the price was even better. Go there for a quick bite.

Went to a couple of their restaurants in town and they are a good place to have a good, quick and inexpensive meal. Service is good and quick. Menu selection is typical for these taco places. Food was always tasty.

Sorry thought you were asking about another place. Here I had tacos I forget the Spanish word for what it was but it was first on the menu and we got a variety. We also got a burrito type thing and that was great as well.
