Best tacos, chicken or beef, I ever ate. Happy hour is nice, but I'm sold on the food even though I never made it past the tacos. Salsa is great also. I recommend this spot.

Short sweet & too the point. Bad service. Sticky tables. Incorrect order. Belittling when we tell waiter food is just nasty/wrong. Total jerk about fixing it. No refills. And had to walk up to find someone to get a ticket. Then double charged for meal....More
