Overview

A simple menu greets you at the cash register where you order. Specializing in Asador style tacos (meat filled and cooked on a griddle), there aren’t a lot of options but everything on their menu, they do well!

Value

If you’re looking for value, come here. Most plates are $7 and will fill you up or you can get tacos ala carte for $1.85 a piece.

3 most popular dishes

Anything with the sweet carnitas, any taco, and mulitas.

What I ordered

Sweet carnitas taco, pollo asado taco, and carne asada taco.

Food quality

The food was flavorful and every element was prepared to enhance the overall dish. All the tortillas were fried on one side adding the perfect crunch. The sweet carnitas sauce was our favorite taco. I’m not usually one for sweet pork but this won me over. The syrupy sauce balanced the buttery tortilla and the crunch took it over the top. The salsa bar provides options for all tastes like salsa roja, pico de gallo, salsa verde, and an avocado-based sauce to add a cool element to the taco. Some of their salsas do pack some heat so be mindful of this.

Ambiance

The space was dark for a casual restaurant but was open and decorated tastefully with Mexican decor and murals. The taco bar was almost empty but the tables were clean.

What I liked most

The sweet carnitas. Get it!

What I disliked most

The menu can be a little confusing if you’re not familiar with the cuisine and you feel hurried to order to move people along.

The verdict

The tacos are amazing, even for someone who doesn’t love tacos. Every bit as good as the tacos I’ve had in California or Mexico.
