    For me...what sets this taqueria apart from so many others is the meat. The owner is a master of marinate and I've literally never seen anyone else run the grill.

    Get the super burrito al pastor. It has a ton of avocado and the marinated port (al pastor) is wonderful.

    Huge and delicious burritos. Don't bother with a combination plate, the burrito alone is more than enough.

    For a good Mexican food craving, this is the place even thought there is an extra charge for chips and salsa.
