Although it was a little hot in here, service was good. The food was typical of a taco/burrito place but with local food made it better. Worth a stop if you are driving through

The burrito is a full meal and should be shared but so far I've been able to eat the whole thing. Great food every visit!

Quirky and budget friendly. This mod mex is fine for a quick snack or informal meal. Try the hot sauces.

I love this place. Nothing fancy, just really fresh, really good food. Guac and chips made to order is orgasmic. Awesome beer choices to wash it down as well.

You have to like tacos to get it. This eatery is a counter and only a few small tables. We had some fresh local fish tacos. If you have a preference for the tortilla type for your taco you need to ask about that when...More

The food was fabulous, very diverse menu. The chef spent a few minutes with us and made our visit very personable. It's a great hole-in-the-wall find. There's not a lot of room for a lot of people, but if you can stop in, do!
