We saw this place on Diner's, Drive-ins and Dives on the Food Network so since we were in Omaha we decided to give it a try. Small place but the food is amazing! We actually ate 2 California tacos each and tried all of them! Take the time to visit this restaurant. You'll be glad you did.

No muss, no fuss just good food served quickly. There's beer too. Be sure to try the nachos. There's a condiment bar for extra additions and no extra cost. I like that.

I have been coming here since the 70's when I worked for Mutual. The food is always great and consistent. I have shared this restaurant with my family and friends for years. If off the beaten road by you have to stop by.

The register went down so our orders went in and we were allowed to pay after we ate. The tacos are awesome and topping bar was well stocked. Did order a strawberry margarita that was horrible. I expected strawberries to be blended in it instead of a cheap mixer. Restaurant could use a good cleaning.

Street parking is not an issue even at busy lunch time. Line moves very quick, tacos are great and so is the service. Pacifico on tap, how can you go wrong?

The California Tacos were good, I absolutely LOVED the almost fry bread type of shell they use - the beef was ok, slightly bland, I think I should have gotten the steak. I did not like the cheese used, it tasted almost like what a shredded Velveeta would taste like - processed cheese. The topping bar though is amazing -... More

We grabbed lunch here and were underwhelmed. We had expected fresh Mex but it was more of an Americanized Tex-Mex with heavy cheese and grease. Good salsas and friendly service but otherwise unremarkable.

We enjoyed a couple of tacos and chips with queso for under $20. The tacos are HUGE and you only need one. The queso is just average, but the salsas are excellent. So get the chips and dip in salsa with the cheese and it is pretty darned good. Nice afternoon weekend lunch.

Love this place! With all of the fixings, you can't go wrong. I can see why it was on DDD! I want to visit every time I get to town.
