Tres Carnales is a fantastic place to grab a nice/quicker lunch. It offers a nice atmosphere with the option of staying in or bringing it to go. The portions are large which is a bit of an issue as it is also very tasty and...More

Again trip advisor helped me I found this counter setup where you order and then sit. The staff was friendly and made good recommendation for the 4 tacos with chorizo. Tasty. It is warm and loud atmosphere.

Tacos al pastor were very small, they only give you a small amount of salsa, if you want more you have to pay like $2.5. The main thing is that al pastor was almost burnt. I didn't enjoyed my expensive tacos. Definitely not coming back.

This restaurant is different, the food is really good, but the music is loud. When it is warm outside, I would recommend sitting there instead of inside.
