The food is consistent with this being a chain. It's odd not even having margaritas at a taco place in Texas. The restaurant could probably seat 200 people but they can only park maybe 20 cars. So, you need to Uber, carpool or find somewhere else to go if you are meeting a group. You could always try Houston's mass... More

Simply great tasting tacos is found on menu here. Damm good queso is the first thing I tried. Then I had the ( Britney Spears) Trailer trash tacos . They were so good ! Then I had the fajita tacos- bomb !!!! I am thinking of going back tonight for round two. Hope to see you there. :)

Love this place! First tried in Austin, and just as good here. I love the beef and chicken fajitas tacos. The food is fresh and delicious.

This is the Democrat, a superb blend of barbacoa, cilantro, and onion topped with an avocado slice on corn tortillas. One of the best-est sellers, for good reason. The only thing that would top it off is the guacamole and chips...I'm just not that hungry today! Be aware that this place is so popular, parking can be a challenge. But... More

This isn't your typical Tex-Mex offering. They have a strange collection of tacos to choose from (and you can get it extra trashy to boot) and thankfully a decent selection of beers to go along with them. A complete meal won't set you back much (about $4 / taco). Well worth a quick visit.

We typically come here to get chips and queso. Always great. Parking lot is AWFUL though. Incredibly tight and dark.

We went to this place with lots of expectations, but at the end we leave the place with a huge disappointment feeling. The food was bland, with cheap ingredients starting from their queso which was the same kind they use at Taco Bell . Service was not great either, and the prices even though were not high, I can assure... More

Yum - good and much food and cheap prices. Very good. Only looking for a parking spot can last. It's worth it though.

That is right, I love the Trailer Park Taco (fried chicken strips) trashed (with Cheese). This place is busy, because it is good. Once you have been here, you will come back too. Also try the Queso and chips, a little on the hot side. Yum...
