    I had steak tacos, I asked for corn on one but when I ate it, it was like "corn in a cup" on a steak taco. Not bad but next time, I'll be more specific. The steak was a little chewy but I'll be back!

    Loved the elote. Hated looking at the filthy kitchen while my food was being cooked.

    Taco and burritos are good. Check out the fish tacos for a burst of flavor.

    Steak is too chewy, I get chicken tacos or the chicken burrito bowl. Both are great. The hot salsa might be the best part of this place even though my stomach tends to think different within 20 min

    The prices are slightly high considering the poor service & interior. The food was good though- esp the tilapia taco with tequila lime cream sauce. Lots of flavorful steak on the stelote burrito.

    he fish tacos here are the closest you're going to come to actual Baja-style without booking a trip to the West Coast. They use tilapia encrusted in tortilla and fried to tender, golden perfection. Read more

    The chicken tortilla soup is really good here. Get a side of Mexican cheese for 50 cents and add some medium green salsa. Trust me.

    The cashier was rude. Food was only halfway acceptable. Luke warm is not one of the ways I like to describe a chicken burrito, not for $8. Paid for a TINY bit of sour cream and cheese. Not returning.

    I always get the fire grilled steak tacos. Chips with guacamole are also highly recommended.

    Elotes are made with a pre mix...ugh gross...and horchata gets slimey...must be a gross mix too!! The burrito bowls are weak and very bland! Chipotle are way better and cheaper.

    Extra tequila lime sauce on the side for your burrito! It gives it some tangy flavors when combined with the hot sauces.

    Very good, but a burrito, quesadilla and two pops should not be 18 bucks. They are opening a new location on Chicago W of Ashland and the places charge less over there!

    Skip the fish tacos, save room for the elote & if you must get a margarita, go for large.
