    Holy cow! Or shall i say holy borrego?? The borrego taco is an explosion of taste in your mouth! As well as the rest. I know good street tacos...these are great city tacos.

    Amazing selection of tacos with great flavors. All the veggie tacos are good but the chile relleno was my favorite.

    If you've been to Tacos El Gordo and love street tacos, then you'll really love it here. Great gourmet twist to a many favorite fillings.

    Small space (not a lot of seating) and generally long lines at dinner time, but quick service and great tacos. Chile relleno is delish!

    Great options for vegetarians and vegans, probably the best options for non-meat tacos in town. Their meat tacos are delicious too.

    Chile Relleno and Portobelo are great picks for vegetarians. The Michelada (lime+ice+tajim+beer) is a must try!

    Pet friendly. They'll bring out a water bowl for your pup. Also, tacos have extremely interesting and flavorful toppings. Not cheap but not expensive either given the ingredients.

    Some of the best tacos I've ever had! $3.50 each, with generous portions of fish or meat. The mahi and the borrego (lamb) were fantastic.

    Boss got takeout for the office: my order was missing (two chile rellenos); and flour tortillas at aren't necessarily authentic when it comes to Mexican food.

    Everything is so so so delicious! Try the carnitas, mahi adobo, ahi tuna, el especial, but honestly can't go wrong with anything.

    Burrago taco was amazing! The lamb was so delicious and tender I'm still thinking about it! Definitely a spot to check out!

    So. Good. Get El Especial, definitely. I sometimes LOVE the atun and sometimes it's only "yeah, that's good," so get that one twice. Ha!

    The tacos are good but not the ordinary Mexican street taco. These are more gourmet taco type.
