Don't be put off by the location, the food here is good, fresh, and big portions. The service is prompt and courteous. Cash only. We had chicken burritos, looking back we should have just gotten one to share they were so big, definitely delicious. I also wish that we had gotten a chance to go back and try the fish taco. They looked magnificent.

Been going for for ages - this place has a small menu but everything is done so well. so fresh and in small batches. Hands down the best fried fish tacos in town. Best re-fried beans ever. For reals though, try the bean and cheese burrito with onions and cilantro and have them put the salsa on the side for dipping. Best Bean and cheese burrito ever, ever ever, and try the fish tacos. Also pretty darn amazing breakfast burritos -

This place is a tiny whole in the wall type of place. Limited seating but the BEST fish tacos I have ever had. They hand batter and fry the fish to order and they are unbelievable. The fish tacos are big, I got the 2 taco combo with rice and barely finished half of the rice. Stick with just one taco and rice or 2 tacos and you will be satisfied for sure! The market next door is pretty sketchy, too bad it detracts from the restaurant. Just keep an eye out and enjoy your meal. WOW!!!!!!
