We were hungry for some good tacos when we came across this place. I should have read the reviews. I love good chorizo and tacos. These were the worst taco's I've ever eaten. They served the chorizo in a puree form, which I had to...More

Went late at night and got a beer and a margarita - pretty standard. Wife got mini chimichangas which she loved. I got street steak tacos which were good, but expensive. Guac was ok but I've had better.
