On Tuesdays tacos are only $1.25. That's a hard deal to beat. With a small horchata, my lunch was under $5.00. The tacos were decent.

This taco and burrito place is small restaurant with some tasty eats. The prices were very cheap and it had lots of flavor. I definitely recommend the Egg and Chorizo Taco/Burrito, it was like breakfast and lunch all in one bite.

I don't know how healthy this is, but they make it fast and it is really good. The chicken burrito was great. The junior size is big enough for one person's meal; any larger than that is gratuitous.
