I ate here for lunch and found the food to be delicious and well-priced. Some of the best tacos I've ever had and everything was fresh and delicious.

Fantastic veggie options! Loved the Baja Veggie burrito--better than homemade. Mistook how large the "large" burrito would be... eaters beware, they are HUGE. Had to share it with my husband who ordered tacos (normal size). Too good to put down. Tried the trio of salsas with chips as well, definitely worthwhile. Thinking about our next chance to venture to the... More

Stopped here at the recommendation of friends. Food was great. The salsa was fabulous. We got the tacos. Our kids got the nachos. Outdoor seating. Not for the OCD. Sense of adventure required.

Order at the window, eat in small area on the street. Fun atmosphere. We ordered 4-5 different kinds of tacos, all were really good. Our kids didn't love theirs (a type of cheese filled quesadilla of sorts) but we really enjoyed the tacos. We also ordered several different drinks (slushy smoothie) and they were really good. Almost the best part... More

Tasty tacos done in a unique way. Portions are not huge but rather just the right size. Lemonade drinks are amazing! They only take cash though.

Had some good tacos her for dinner one night. You have to get there early though because they closed early one night because they tend to run out of food

Had the al pastor burrito, we split it because it looked pretty large but were shocked to find hardly any al pastor in it. I have owned a taco truck and we would put two scoops of meat in a burrito, this burrito had maybe 1 ounce of al pastor. It was 99 percent rice and beans. Sure it tasted... More

I am sorry for your poor experience. For the large burrito the portion of meat is about 8oz which inside of that big ol burrito is a lot of meat. If this was not the case we must have made a portion mistake. We offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee and will be happy to give you a full refund or... More
