Great little out of the way taco stand. Really fresh ingredients. You get to build your own taco or burrito. Very friendly service and cute porch to sit outside on and enjoy CDM without spending a fortune. Shrimp tacos my favourite

I am not sure if this is a local business of a chain but the prices and food is great. Quick service and very similar to Chipotle. They have seats to eat there and take out service. Love their carnitas.
