The inside looks like a Cinco de Mayo party with all the cheesy decorations but this is some of the best mexican food I have had, especially the tacos. I had a bacon, shrimp taco, carnitas and chorizo. You can choose the meat and the...More

Epic failure. They handed us a full menu, we found what we wanted, and 30 minutes later when they came to take our order they told us they only had a limited menu which eliminated about 72.3% of the menu. No quiero Chachos. PS: there...More

Who doesn’t love $2.00 tacos?! This place piles on the meat. Order the Chilie Verde Tacos. They are very moist. If you get there before 7pm they have happy hour. Easy dinner for under $20.00 on a week night. What is also great is that...More
