Truckee funky decor; outside seating with personal fire pits on Main Street, inside bar, high tops, booths. Extensive unique taco selection (Parmesan chicken, Big Mac, Korean BBQ, ban mi). Also enjoyed chicken quesadillas, steak salad. Small pool table, video games, tv's. Good for groups.

Dropped in for lunch attracted by the tables outside (so our dog could be with us). Pleasantly surprised by the mix of food styles. Had an order of tortilla chips and choice of salsas (try Jose's special). Then Pho soup, and some choices of tacos...More

I am not a big fan of tacos per se, let alone "gourmet tacos." But if you are ever in Truckee this is a must stop for lunch. The tacos were simply outstanding! And these are not your normal cheese and hamburger tacos. I had...More

This place was packed...so we thought it would be great. It was only average at best. And this place is not cheap. Service was outstanding with everyone friendly and quick to help but we could not get over how overpriced this place was for tacos!...More

What a find of a taco bistro. My husband and I had their chicken pineapple tacos. They were one of the best tacos we have had. We ordered chips and salsa. You can pick 3 different salas to go with your chips. The restaurant has...More

Good choice of taco possibilities. Chips with different salsa choices is nice (even though you have to pay for it). Salsas tasted fresh made. I enjoyed my quesadilla even though it was a bit small for the $$. Service was okay, but not spectacular as...More

Friends took us here for lunch. Truckee is a quaint town. The tacos were very gourmet to a degree. I had the Korean barbecue tacos. Incredible. The food was good, although some of the portions were small. The rice came in one ramekin and beans...More

I like the concept of this place and the internal decor. However, I didn't think the food was anything to write home about. We had the guac and chips as an appetizer- it was okay, but not amazing. I got the a la carte tacos...More
