Was visiting our daughter and this is her place for tacos. Went to dinner (we were a party of 4). You order at the counter, pay and find a seat, then they bring the food out to you. They have a salsa bar which you...More

After having a great lunch we were back twice again because of the quality (and quantity) of food. Would recommend the Burrito De Carnitas (pork) ($6.95) with a side of guacamole ($1.50) and be amazed at the size and quality of the ingredients.

We were passing and looking out for somewhere to eat lunch and thought we would give this a try. We were delighted. The carnitas with pulled pork was the best ever, and the vegetarian meal was very good too. The staff were friendly and helpful....More
