If you want to skip the taco truck and sit down this is the place for you. Great street food in a sit down restaurant.

Great tacos. I always order the taco less the tortilla just because the meat is so flavorful. My son has ordered pretty much everything on the menu an loves everything

On the road and stopped for the night, picked up and brought it back. Sweet place, great atmosphere and friendly. Delicious pastor taco plate and even in the go-box it looked beautiful

The atmosphere here is like stepping into a little cafe on a beach in Mexico. The food is great, I would recommend the Gringa Quesadilla.

Family of four stopped for dinner. The food was fresh made and tasty. You order at counter, get your silverware & drinks. Food was brought to us. The portions are large and there are many options.

The portions were large. 2 adults split a burrito supreme, another had a tosatda and a large nacho plate was plenty for three young children. It was tasty. You can order food to go or eat at the few tables they have.
