Tacos are the best! But everything on the menu is pretty awesome. It's VERY Authentic! The Staff is awesome and know me by name and order. I suggest everyone go try their food and get to know the staff.

Their menu also includes ala carte sopes, tortas, burritos, quesadillas, and taco salad, and they have a couple of meal options that include rice and beans. They serve fountain drinks, horchata and bottled soda and beer. On "Taco... More

just ate there tonight. The food was not very good. Tacos were ok but very tiny. I'll go to Jimboy's next time for sure.

A young man was cooking, and when i walked up he came forward to the counter to take my order, while waiting, i washed my hands, when i came back there was a burrito ready, on the counter, and when i asked him if it...

My wife and I went last night and really enjoyed our dinner there. I ordered three tacos: carnitas, al pastor, and carnitas. Of the three the carnitas was the best as it was moist and flavorful. The horchata was a great and refreshing. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a good taco in Grass Valley.

I enjoy this little taco shop in our town. It's got pretty good salsa, a nice selection of tacos and really good tasting beans. The place seems well run by caring folks. They have a wide variety of mexican fare to choose from. Give them a try.

I thought the menu was overpriced, tacos were dry. I ordered taquitos also and the order only comes with 1 taquito. Didn't think it was flavorful either. The outdoor tables were filthy

I'm a sucker for really good taco. Theirs are pretty good. Like the chip/salsa bar. One criticism is the carnitas taco I ordered was a bit dry like it was overcooked, but have had excellent carnitas tacos there before. So may have just been an off day. Would go back again.
