We took out a pork, beef and sweet potato burritos. Large, fresh and flavorful. We have eaten some great burritos in Southern California and these were almost as good. Great little place. Well worth the visit. We'll be back.

What a great little taco shop. The food was made to order and the tacos were very filling and had great flavor. The prices are reasonable and the staff was very friendly. This is a little gem that is worth the find in the neighborhood.

A simple taco and burrito place, very nicely done, with outdoor seating. You can purchase a bottle of beer to go with your order around the corner at the Local 44 Bottle shop.

Such a perfect place for a weekend breakfast or brunch. The breakfast tacos are so good with either the sausage or the bacon. The generous amount of guacamole they apply makes every bit more and more exceptional.

You know when you're an out-of-towner and you see some small, divey place with a line of locals going out the door? Yeah, well this is that place. The food is fresh and amazing, and it's an incredible value. It's worth standing in line for...More
