Customer Review

I ordered the 1st time last week for my client. This woman has traveled the world and after she had her meal she told me “it was the best tacos she’s ever had” She had the asada, chicken, and carnitas

So [I] ordered last night, [and] she wasn’t kidding! Avocado and Mushroom tacos, jalapeño poppers and a veg burrito. ALL AMAZING

The fresh ingredients, the tortilla, and the spices. OMG!

Very good, authentic Mexican restaurant. Corn and flour Tortillas are homemade, beans and rice were good, fajitas mixtas and hard shell tacos were delicious and [the] meat was cooked perfectly. Pina colada and margaritas were delicious and well priced.

Customer Review

I came across this place while I was visiting. To my surprise, there was a long line and wait due to it being taco Tuesday. I went to grab a drink at the bar, and ended up staying and getting a seat.

Very cool atmosphere and people, very attentive service. I was very pleased before I ordered….then I was hooked. Chips and salsa were tasty and those carnitas tacos…so good!! I had to get another round of them.
