The carne asada tacos are $2.40 each and very small. Also not that good with poor quality of meat. Not worth it for what you get. Much better choices nearby. Rivas and Los Tacos next door. Not going back to this overrated taco joint.

The lines are lenghty up to 45 minutes due to their system to order tacos. There are 3 lines but you can only order specific type tacos in each line. As an example, if you want steak and Al Pastor tacos, you have to get...More
