Stopped by here to get some tacos after a hike. Got the food to go because we had dogs in the car. The handmade tortillas are delicious, as were the fish, carne asada, and vegetarian tacos, the latter of which I've never even seen before....More

Only downsides are not being especially fast, we've had orders get a little confused ever (not more than I'd expect elsewhere). The folks there are super nice, the food is a great value and totally delicious, lots of options. Just a great place overall.

The burritos are very good. The tacos too, if you add the extras, otherwise they are pretty much just meat. They are friendly and the prices are good. We purchase take out a lot, but, they have room to eat in too.

Parking is a bit dodgy but the place is bright and fresh and clean. They have a very good taqueria style menu. The food is fresh and tasty and generous. My wife loved her chili rellenos. Great, very attentive service and very reasonable prices.

This is a great taco shop. The service isn't super fast so be patient. Very friendly. And they have a bunch of yummy sauces they make themselves at their salsa bar

We enjoyed the warm chips with the salsa! Seat yourself and order at the counter, food is brought to you. There are no signs to tell you this so it's good to know. The horchata is awesome! We had tacos and a papusa type enchilada...More

Driven by many times and finally stopped. Not much for atmosphere but the food was great. The service was very attentive. Prices are crazy low! Tamales, carne asada taco, huge burrito, fish taco and soda for around $15. Can't beat that.
