This place has delicious queso at a reasonable price. Also, there are several gluten free vegetarian options. Free parking available. There was a line but it moved quickly and food came out quickly after being ordered.

The menu was great - they had anything you wanted in a taco ;) The staff was great. They obviously move a lot of people through there, but you don't feel like it. When they're helping you they give you their full attention. The food...More

Fantastic and unique selections! Everything tasted fresh and clean. We did a random sampling and its so hard to pick a favorite! Steak and cheese is good of you if you have a pickier pallet, but I loved the Tuna Tokyo and Bang Bang!

In the River Arts District, you can eat in or take out, with quick service, fantastic tacos, and affordable prices. You can't only eat one taco here!

Most of their tacos are about $3.50. Only the duck taco is more; $5.75 from what I recall. You get two white corn wraps per taco. You could split the filling to make two tacos out of one.
