Thoroughly enjoyed my chicken tacos from this restaurant. The chicken was tender and juicy and the topping used were of the freshest quality. This is a great spot to grab dinner with friends. Although, I do wish they would open for lunch.

Walk able from campus, or a $6 UBER, Mono Loco has the best Mexican food we've found in Cville. Reasonable, with a big menu and great service.
