Very spicy food! Tacos are good just don't expect good customer service. They could keep the restaurant a little cleaner and smile a little more. If the food wasn't so good I wouldn't come back until they hired more friendly staff. Maybe they don't like gringos?? :-(

I love this place and I love it in spite of the red flags. The building is old and not kept up, the parking lot is a mess with potholes and trash everywhere and there are occasionally some ne'er-do-wells hanging out outside. I ignored all of this and walked inside...it is pretty gross inside, too. Then I looked at the... More

The food is good here. The steak burrito is great. The prices seem high but occasionally worth it. Good horchata too.

Flavor was good, and I did not get sick. Quantity for the price was not what I expected. Servings seemed small. It has a drive through window for fast service. The overall condition of the premises were deplorable. It appeared to be an abandoned DelTaco with a crumbled parking lot. The landlord should be embarrassed. The tenant should complain. It... More

Very friendly staff. The food tastes really good and from what I was told it is authentic. My kids had beef tongue and loved it. My husband and I tried the tripe soup. It was quite tasty but the smell was too strong for us so it was hard to enjoy it. I would say the food is a little... More

After reading other reviews, we found our own experience a little disappointing. We arrived about an hour before closing and the dining area was empty but rather messy---unwiped tables, dirty floor. The food is definitely authentic (I ordered the beef tongue taco...haven't seen those since eating at a taquiera in L.A) and good, but really spicy. Only complaint was our... More

My favorite are the tortas. The nachos aren't that bad either, they just don't have the typical cheese dip we know and love. The drive thru is the super convenient but this isn't "fast food" so don't be upset if you're not in and out in 90 seconds.

The best place to go for authentic food. Fantastic food every time! Don't be afraid of the outside, taco al pastor is highly recommended!

Take you food out as the seating here is some of the most uncomfortable I have ever seen. Have been here several times and had many different meals, but the tacos are great and the the sauces are wonderful. Try this for fun and adventure. Food is cheap
