Tried the three pollo tacos and used the salsa bar to add a bit too each. The green and red were a bit hot for me, the tomato one was quite refreshing, but I really liked the taste of the fruity salsa. The salsa bar...More

Took a business colleague as I have been a fan of the carne asada tacos but I was convinced to try the chorizo and was equally impressed. By far the best tacos in GR.

The food is fresh and hot, and the self-service salsa and lime bar is great. They ask if you're OK with onions and cilantro, which my husband appreciated. The quesadillas and the tacos are awesome. We'd recommend the chicken (pollo) and pork (al pastor).

Thoroughly impressed with the quality of this food. The tacos asada were absolutely delicious and authentic- with a fresh corn tortilla, cilantro, onions, and cheese. Hands down the best tacos I've found on the West Side of the state. Service was friendly and much quicker...More

Had some daddy-daughter time at lunch today. I got chorizo tacos and pork tamales. Both were excellent! Daughter had quesadilla and she commented that this was way better than many other she's had before. We took our food upstairs and ate in the greenhouse. It...More
