The restaurant is neat, lots of outdoor seating and looks like the kitchen is in a food truck on the property. Service is fast, food is good. There are lots of different types of tacos from lamb to fish to veggie to pork. Good salads...More

I saw this place on the Phantom Gourmet, and thought I'd give it a try. Went and had lunch this past weekend, and the good reviews are legit. This is not your average mexican taco joint, far from it. They offer a variety of unique...More
