This is a well run restaurant and is always clean. The food is very good here, including the street tacos. My entire family enjoys picking up food here on nights we can't cook at home.

Never normally taken by non-full service restaurants but the food here was good. Good selection, reasonably priced and enough for a takeaway box for back at the hotel.

I typically do not go out of my way to eat at, or review, fast food restaurants. We happened into this location, whereas we have been at a few of the others. Ok, the place is tired and in severe need of a remodel. The food is better than average and the prices are fair.

Yes, Los Primos has Jamaica Ole, Pina Colada Bang, Orange Bang, Tamarindo Ole, and Horchata Ole. Orange Bang is a lot like Orange Julius, and Hochata Ole is like a drinkable version of rice pudding. The food is cheap and filling. The salsa bar is just okay. But those drinks................................worth the trip.

This is a great little taco shop with excellent enchilada sauce, beans and combos. Their breakfast burritos are a great deal for a delicious start to your day.
