    Good food at about 33% more expensive price point than most taco shops I've been to around here.

    If you get the Horchata, get some extra ice in a cup so you can dilute it a little…for some reason it’s always very sweet/syrup-y.

    This place is always hopping during the school year, be aware. Otherwise killer carne asada that you simply must try. The shrimp tacos are actually fresh as well - rather hard to come by in the desert

    Really good Asada tacos/burritos. Solid Pastor. Try the Americas Corn for their twist on a classic Elote!

    The tacos and tortas are a bit small but taste great! Have either (or both) with some of their horchata (or glass bottled Coke). So good!

    The price is a little high for tacos at $2.35 but America's is one of the better taco places I've had in Arizona so far. The ceviche is also really good. :)

    You’ve never had a carne asada taco like this! With a simple yet delicious menu (not to mention Mexican Coca-Cola!) a trip to America’s is always a good idea. And don’t forget to try the Vampiro!

    ASU students if you haven't stopped by here it's a must! They have the best carne asada and best bean and cheese burritos! It's not taco bell cheap but decently price for the quality.
