The tacos are decent, but a little pricier than one would expect. The service is typically friendly. The fried chicken tacos are good. Simple strip mall atmosphere with a nice patio.

Inexpensive, especially on Toco Tuesdays (all tocos $3.) Soft corn tortillas were good; filling ok; I didn't care for the taste of any of the salsa options. Smoked meat options (chicken, brisket) were very smoky.More
