Casual restaurant and quite busy, but that is a good thing Good size portions and fresh ingredients. Tacos made to order so taste good and open late at night. Drinks were OK as well and cost is great.

Fed a family of three with generous portions for about $20. Ate here 3 days out of the 7 days in PV. The chicken and cheese quesadilla was my favorite.

Sidewalk seating for great tacos made to order. Great place to people watch. Do not be surprised if there is a waiting line. Open late for a late night snack or dinner.
