The place has an awesome patio to enjoy in warmer days, parking can be an issue depending on the hours, staff is very friendly and attentive and the food is really tasty, my wife loved the fish tacos, our friend had tamales and he said they were spicy but good and my steak burrito was delicious, if you want to...

small place, but fun atmosphere. Friendly staff that handles the crowd well. I ordered the 2 taco combo platter and got one shrimp and one carne asada. The carne asada taco was good, meat was tender but the taco was dry. The shrimp taco was amazing. Rice and beans were great. good prices.

I had never heard of this place before until a friend took me there. I was nervous about cross contamination due to having Celiac disease ( gluten free). Everything on their menu was gf ( with exception to the flour tortillas)! I loved their nachos- they were loaded and delishious! We received quick service and everyone was very friendly. I... More

The wait - in the drive thru or inside waiting for a table - is completely worth it. The carne asada is amazing, but it's the grilled fish tacos that stand out. They rotate the type of fish daily, so each time we go, we hope it's red snapper (we don't love the salmon, though it is still delicious) or... More

Needed some Mexican comfort food after just landing in SL. Between the 4 of us we ate just about everything, tacos, burritos, chips, guac. All delicious and hot....good combo:). Definitely recommend if you are in the area but be mindful of parking during lunch or dinner.

Had shrimp tacos and carne asada tacos. Quite a taste treat - shrimp were spicy. The fresh made guacamole is to die for and the chips freshly fried and thick. Might have tried the special today , salmon tacos but the order taker couldn't t tell is whether they were farm raised or wild caught.

OK, so there's no snow, and it's way too HOT for way too long! Tacos and chips and cold lemonade was the perfect lunch!! Parking lot is always full, but circle through, and your spot may open up!! The umbrellas make for a festive time!!

We met friends here and everyone enjoyed their meal. The restaurant is small; when we came the parking lot was full and we had to park at the bank up above. We were able to get a table outdoors and enjoyed our meal. My husband had the fish tacos, and I enjoyed the nachos (although the jalapenos were pretty strong,... More

Go for the tacos, chips and guacamole, or anything on the menu. We have never left disappointed. This is simple, tasty food. Very casual atmosphere. Fish served on the fish tacos changes daily.
