The family of four with two teens loved this spot for a casual, affordable dinner. Boys loved the fish tacos, and the crab cake taco was a close second. Part of a small chain in the Carolinas so if you see another try it out.

I really enjoy eating here. Taco's are great with a great beer selection. The pork belly taco is absolutely amazing. If you want to try a taco that is different than your average Mexican style taco you cannot go wrong here.

Response from Vanissa J | Reviewed this property |
Most of their tacos are about $3.50. Only the duck taco is more; $5.75 from what I recall. You get two white corn wraps per taco. You could split the filling to make two tacos out of one.
Dog friendly?
