Can't beat the tacos - my favorite is the carnitas. Great happy hour specials with good choice of local beers on tap. Added bonus are the tequilas and the ones they infuse themselves. Friendly service. Great locals place.

You choose your filling, you choose your style, you choose your tortilla type. Truly a customized taco experience! And if you like tequila, be sure to try any of their infused tequilas to go with your tacos. Good chips and salsa and guacamole too.
