Pleasantly surprised at getting some good tacos at a reasonable price and they don't skimp on the meat servings in their tacos. Overall a good meal that doesn't pinch the wallet. Consider this quasi fast food. Order at counter, get food, find and bus your...More

My favorite place for a quick and healthy meal. My favorite stop to grab a baja style burrito or bowl. Love the choices refried, black and/or pinto beans. Also several choices of meat and white rice and Spanish rice. Excellent service, clean and tasty!

great food and good service. Try the fish tacos -- fantastic! Food is prepared to order and the wait is still minimal. Outside seating available. The place is clean.... that is important to me. Worth the stop.

A good taco to take out or eat in. Fresh ingredients are shown through a line for you to choose either with flour or corn tortillas. No dinning here but good snack. If you are a Mexican food fan - you'll get a good "Taco...More

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
