Wicked skimpy tacos. You could go broke filling up on these! Cant go wrong with anything on the menu though. Its all good. Pretty well priced too. Except those tacos.

The chips and salsa are great. We have tried may different items on the menu and all are good. The place has an interesting display of used license plate arranged on the wall in the approximate shape of the USA.

Really casual and quick service. The food was delicious and tasted fresh and was brilliant value for money. We had the specials, pork belly, deep fried avocado and catfish tacos - the pork in particular was great!
