My husband and I loved this place. While ordering, you can see the rotisserie chickens being cooked behind the counter. They have incredibly unique flavors of tacos and delicious queso blanco. They also have lots of outdoor seating if the weather is nice.

If you love tacos, you MUST come here! Went for lunch and had the #3.5, #12, and tots with an egg. The food was very filling/flavorful.

Amazing tacos! I had the Cuban pork and elote......so tasty. Washed it down with LoneStar beer. The place is small and it gets busy quick. I recommend getting there early.
