Fantastic. A hole in the wall with amazing food. The carne asada tacos are as good as you'll get anywhere - simple, straightforward and full of deliciousness. Don't pass this place by.

Authentic, mostly Baja style. Very limited seating, always order to go, and order 45 minutes ahead Fri-Sun evenings. Excellent tacos. Carne Asada burrito is amazing ( I get it without rice or beans inside).
