“Want a great authentic taco?”
Reviewed 9 April 2014 via mobile

The location for this place has moved down the street, so when you see the original building, keep walking down Calle 5 and you won't miss it. Their tacos are out of this world delicious! I had the Luciano. It's grilled beef, cheese, pablano pepper, and onions. Not spicy just delicious! Wish they were in my hometown. And yes they're a bit expensive but worth it!

The food was awesome but the margaritas were $12 each. Prices were not posted and we learned an expensive lesson!

“Philly Cheese steak on a tortilla”
Reviewed 19 February 2014

Sounds odd, but after a couple weeks in Mexico I need variety, and the "aligator" diner here reminded me (in a good way) of the cheese steaks I grew up with. Everything we tried was very good, and the new location (last month) is pleasant for this small family spot. My friends have been several times, and I know I will return.
