    Crazy delicious food. Vibrant and energetic staff (they sing and call-back when you order certain items). They get busy for lunch, so head over early if you want to skip the line.

    Barbacoa nachos are insanely good, especially with the queso sauce instead of shredded cheese! The pork is sweet, but oh so yummy!

    Holy moly! Their portions are huge! The pork babacoa is delish... And I'm not supposed to even eat pork. It's sweet... So you gotta like it that way if you order it.

    Get the barbacoa salad, with house dressing. But on weekdays, get in before 11 to avoid the line!

    Food is fantastic. Tortillas are freshly made. They could improve on the customer service front. Employees seem unhappy to work here. Every single table is uneven so it makes it hard to cut your food.

    Order the pork salad... like everyone says, it's the best! And it's so big that I eat half and have the other half the next day!

    Their salads are famous and really good. Pick the creamy tomatillo house dressing. It is epically good.
