What a great find! So glad I stopped. It smelled good walking up and the food did not disappoint. I got a single taco plate with grilled chicken, and rice and beans on the side. Lunch for less than five dollars is hard to find! And SO tasty!

My parents, myself, and my kids have been here and can rave about almost anything. You won't get a bad burrito, taco, or entree. You just won't! I love their tortas. you better be hungry or have a big stomach to eat these in 1 sitting. Great location and I actually love the smaller store front. Plenty of seating even... More

Great for take-out or quick casual dining. Fantastic Salsa Bar. The (Chicken) Chili Verde is a favorite. Excellent carnitas and steak tacos and burritos. Most plates and the famous burritos feed two people or are great for leftovers. The location may be a bit tricky to find from the 55 Freeway. Just Use your GPS with this address.

It is always a great stop and never disappoints. Great salsa and fixings to accompany your meal. Meats are high quality and the value is exceptional. All fresh and made to order. Only drawback is no beer!

Consistent, good food; good value; salsas and guacamole are especially good. Prices are cheap enough no reason to wait for taco Tuesday discounts

The Carne Asada Tacos are just as good as Chipotle - "Maybe Better". The line factor at lunchtime isn't as bad if you call in your order as I do from my office, it'll be ready when you arrive. FIVE CLAWS UP!!!!! Peace - 'Joe the Bear'

I have been going here for several years, but the service is not as good as is was and the quality of food is not as good. I dont see the manager/owner anymore so I wonder if ownership had changed.

Stopped by to get take out, their service is fast and the food was beyond my expectation from a fast food. The meat is tender and salas bar is fresh. I would come back again for sure. I tried burrito with stake. Yummy

Taco Tuesday on Cinco de Mayo! What timing! I came in on a Tuesday night around 6:15 PM, and this place was pretty packed, though there was plenty of outdoor seating available. The windows of this shop boasts $1.39 tacos on Tuesdays. How could I say no? And on Cinco de Mayo no less? I ended up ordering 3 carne... More
