“I left this place hungry, searching for a decent taqueria”
Reviewed 10 July 2008

I used to think this place was okay but recently I had a very bad experience here. I ordered Regular Nachos with meat, cheese, sour cream, guacomole and salsa. It was a little over 6 dollars after tax. If I had placed all the crumpled up pieces of chips together, I would say there was maybe 10 tortialla chips there. These 10 chips sat in a cardboard container 4 by 6 inches, 1 and a half inches deep. The size of my nachos explained why the cashier looked at me like I was crazy when I asked him to only put the guacamole and salsa on half of the nachos. You just can't divide things this small. Now I realize there is inflation, and the price of corn has gone up , but come on! I asked the manager what the deal was. He showed me the menu, and pointed out that I should have ordered the "Super Nachos", which was somewhere around 8 dollars.... I know restaurants have a better standard of food quality than fast food, but this little nachos would have costed 99 cents at taco bell... add in tips (which I did not leave)... ect... It just wasn't right. I would have to say that this place is way overpriced for what they give you. And above all Don't order the regular nachos.

“Good Casual Mexican Food”
Reviewed 14 April 2008

This taqueria is informal, but has good Mexican food. They are friendly and fast and have a very busy lunch hour, due to all the businesses in the area.
