I stumbled onto this taco shop completely by accident while running errands and thought I'd give it a try. I am glad I did. This oddly shaped shop has limited seating inside (seating is a few tables and a long counter where you can watch the employees) it does have some seating outside as well.

The service was quick and professional although I wouldn't describe it as friendly. The food was made from scratch. The white corn tortillas were a nice touch. The carnita and chorizo tacos were not as flavorful as the barbacoa taco. The tacos were doubled wrapped (two tortillas per taco) which was good because they don't drain the meat so you have very wet tacos.

The salsa bar was a nice touch with a big variety of salsa. The pico de gallo was obviously hand made and was very chunky. If you are a chili head like me that is a good thing. The prices were affordable. Nice find. Definitely worth going back and trying the burritos.

Had the Baja fish taco- Delish! Ordered at the bar and food was very good , although my meal and a 6 oz container of guacamole were both 3.99. Guacamole was not worth that price. I would go back however, just won’t get the guacamole

Delicious,fresh,hot and quick.
Tinga chicken soft taco is outstanding. Perfect level of kick and the diced onion and freh cilantro are the perfect compliment.

Black beans are perfectly cooked and not too soft and spicy. Lots of option of salsas to accompany the house made tortilla chips.

Looking forward another visit soon.

I have been here a few times for lunch, all of which has been delicious. A plus is that they have now taken the space next door so it is twice as big. There is a bar as well. I always get the Chicken Taco Salad and can't make myself order anything else because it is so good! Very reasonable prices. Check it out!
