    Their tacos are awesome! My fave is the Cuban Taco. Other popular ones are: El Rey Taco, Ropa Vieja Taco and Rotisserie Chicken Taco. Lemonade is made fresh and horchata is really good!

    When here for breakfast, nothing beats a #6 on whole wheat with egg whites for guilt free mexican food. For lunch, a cuban taco with chicken is tops.
