Great tacos - great atmosphere - no nonsense countertop service. This is the place to go for tacos in Yuma - in the back of a dirt parking lot, a little hard to find if you're looking for an elaborate store front. Just look for the crowd. Don't miss.

A taco stand with tent-covered dining. BYOB. Terrific beef or shrimp tacos, with all of the best sauces & salsas. Other menu items too. Too bad we found this on our last night in town.

We are in Yuma for a couple of months every year and this is a "must go to" place. We go with friends a couple of times a week. Love the fish, shrimp and carne tacos. Add the chipalonas for that extra taste. Chipalonas is a pablano pepper and cheese.

The absolute best shrimp tacos anywhere. All of the menu items are superb but I cannot rave enough about the shrimp tacos, if you haven't been you should give them a try!

My family and I stumbled upon this eatery. All I can say is excellent. I wish that I lived closer! Besides being delicious, it was very reasonably priced.

Spotless clean and super friendly. There are many taco stands locally but this one is hands down the best around

We love tacos and this place is amazing. 10 tacos and 3 quesadillas under 30 bucks. Can beat the service, food and flavor.

The food is always delicious. The owners are very nice and they are very quick. You never have to wait more that 15 minutes for your food. They have a little covered condiment section where you can add FRESH salsa, avocado, etc.

Thank JC C
