Rustic, very popular (now large) taco stand on Avenida Tecnológico. Be careful not to order more than two tacos or tostadas per person. They are huge! Very good service and always full of people.

Very good food but always very over packed. The tacos de Cameron enchilada are three best. You can make an extra taco out of one.

It is very tasty but with a lot of fat in each of every taco. Taking away the fat, it's really good and the best is the pulpo taco
