I wasn't sure what to order so we went for the Taco Tuesday special and ordered a crunchy potato and chicken taco and a regular carnitas taco. Those crunchy tacos were really good and we enjoyed them they both had the perfect amount of ingredients....More

Went here for our weekly "Taco Tuesday" with a friend. had a carnitas, potato and chicken taco. The best was the carnitas. Their guac was equally good. Over all a decent spot for Mexican.

Very authentic Mexican at a very reasonable price. They have a liquor license. Well at least beer. Arrived was friendly and very quick. Love a fish taco in a corn tortilla.
