I have been going here for years and just love it. The tacos are 100% Mexican street food. Plain and fresh and delicious. They have 6 kinds of tacos that are served with choice of fresh cilantro and onion and hot or mild salsa. That is it and it is great. My kids love it and will eat the more "gringo" style chicken r beef but they love it so much they also order the authentic lengua and cabeza. My favorite is the carnitas and the al pastor. They have soda as well including cactus cooler which is hard to find and goes great with the tacos. Cheap and delicious.

They only offer 5 choices - they're inexpensive, tasty and fun. Grilled pork and "beef head" were the best. Don't let the name throw you - it's really good. In the parking lot of an auto body shop - open very late & crowded

This red taco truck has been in the same location for over 20 years and I have been coming here when I craves tacos. They make the most authentic tasting tacos. They carry the basic beef, ,pork, chicken and tongue tacos which is the best. Other nuevo taco trendy taco trucks cost more and is just trendy..They start serving tacos from 6:00pm till they close...If in the area, try it for yourself.
