Found this gem on Trip Advisor. Thursday's are $1 tacos! The whole place was packed and the food was already on counter before I had finished paying for it. Went with ground beef tacos. There is really no need to use the hot sauce because of the great seasonings on the meat. Tacos were wrapped up in two corn tortillas.... More

I got their chicken tacos with everything on them and they were pretty good. Best part about it, they only cost me a dollar each (tacos cost only a dollar each on Tuesdays/Thursdays). The horchata wasn't that good, but for a buck per taco i was satisfied.

We have tried a lot of different taco places and this is by far one of the best and good value to. They also offer $1.00 tacos on certain days of the week.

Unkept dining area. Several dirty tables and food on the floor. Spoiled carrots and jalapeños. The food tasted far from good and much more americanized. The rice and beans tasted like it came straight from a can. We will not be coming back.

$1.00 tacos every Tuesday and Thursday, what's not to like? A great place for carry out. The restaurant is clean but noisy. If you go in later, the floors get cleaned while your eating, and the smell of disenfectant doesn't enhance the flavor of the food. They have chili relleno burritos! and they are excellent, as are the chorizo sopes.... More

Although the food is good and the service is fast, I found it to be a bit salty; thus an average rating from me.
