    Very good Mexican food for a great price. Most of the workers speak only Spanish which makes it that much more authentic.

    The tacos al pastor are soooo good! If you come to Austin you should definitely check this place out. Ask for Daniel, the best manager ever.

    The breakfast tacos are the best!! Be sure to put some of their orange-ish color sauce on them! Also, the queso fundido is awesome too (for lunch).

    Don't do it. This place is one big health code violation.

    Everything you want from a casual dining experience: good prices and tasty food. The tacos are fantastic across the board, but definitely try the al pastor. Read more

    Best margaritas in town. The way to do it is half tamarindo and half pineapple! And $4.25, in a schooner, during HH!

    The Gringa taco with fajita is excellent. If you think they're small for your appetite, order two. It won't break the bank.

    Service is so slow. It usually takes 5-10 minutes just to get my pineapple drink. The tacos are kiddie size. They don't even act like they appreciate my business.
