Came here for happy hour tacos and it was great ($2.50 each). Loved the Cauliflower and Carnitas tacos. The Mezclada was okay - not amazing.

While walking across this section of Vancouver, we stopped here to sample a couple of their happy hour specials. For $4.95, you could get Pawn Shop Lager on tap, a tequila shot or a spiked slush. I had the lager which was perfectly drinkable. My...wife chose one of the slushes which can be customized with different spirits and mixers. Hers was a jalapeño tequila with pineapple juice which she enjoyed (spicy and sweet). When we paid, we noticed that the advertised prices had not included taxes.More

We visited the Pawn Shop on a Sunday evening. Every Sunday is All Day Happy Hour. The place was full and rocking. Fresh Mexican Food with $2.50 tacos that we amazingly fresh and tasty. Isaac our bartender was a great guy and took the time...to help us with our choices. The DJ was rocking the tunes, great sound system and atmosphere. Loved it.More

My friend and I went on a Saturday night for some drinks and food. Our bartenders Cam and Misti were the absolute best! They were so kind, outgoing, and our service was very fast. Very fun/cool atmosphere and like I said, the best bartenders around!...Highly recommend.More

The vegetarian tacos are so good and their drink menu is fantastic. We go here whenever we visit Vancouver and are never disappointed. Their Happy Hour was from 12-5pm which rocks.

We chose this place for the proximity to our hotel and the look. We were pleasantly surprised with the taste of the food. I had the taco al pastor and it was a wonderful mix of flavors. We were there early so there were no...crowds and the service was great. And of course, tequila makes everything better!More

As others have recommended the Happy hour is great. At happy hour prices you’re definitely getting a good value play. I wouldn’t want to pay full price for the size of the tacos that they’re offering. I also had a beer with a huge foamy...head which is always annoying. The foam took up the top third of the glass. I know that’s a pet peeve of mine but I still find it annoying when the bartender gives a sloppy pour.More

This is a great spot in Vancouver to have a cheap, good meal. During happy hour you can get chicken, beef, pork or a vegetarian taco for $2. They are small bites so you will want to have the minimum of 3. The atmousphere was...lively and there are tv's for sports fans!More

My husband and I were strolling on Granville Street, and noticed the "happy hour" special sign in front of the restaurant offering $1.99 tacos from 4 to 6 pm.We ducked in right at 6 pm, and they allowed us to order under the special price....There were several taco options on the special menu, so we selected a variety (must order 3 per person, and a drink). The tacos were prepared fresh in front of us (we sat at the bar facing the prep area as it was crowded), and were excellent! We were so pleased we went back a few days later (at about 5:30 pm), and sat at a table, trying a few different taco options. Again, delicious! And our server Kelsey was excellent as well! A great experience, great food, service and price!More
