This place is the best! I've been wanting to go to the one located in Las Vegas but never got the chance to. When you walk inside you'll see 3 lines. Each line has a designated meat where you can order. So if you want...More

Best Tacos place and we ordered Taco Adovada, Taco Tripa and Taco Asada. This is a very busy place but food is served very quickly. Prepare to stand in a long line during lunch hour, so try to arrive early.

Really really good traditional Mexican tacos. We're talking ACTUAL traditional tacos. Affordable and delicious. Usually a wait but anything under 30 mins it is WELL worth it. We waited 40mins gladly
