This is a cash only establishment is not the best or worst you'll visit. Went with a large group and was impressed with the speed they were able to serve us. However, the food was only ok - nothing that would knock your socks off.

Had three tacos, two were chicken and the third was marinated pork. All three were fantastic but my favorite was probably the marinated pork. My son loved the fish tacos as well. Overall an excellent place, authentic, friendly, and can't wait to come here again!

We visited this restaurant after a long trip. Be forewarned, this is a cash only business, so don't bother bringing a credit card. The staff was helpful and we got our food rather quickly. I had the steak quesadilla with fish tacos. My wife had...More
