    The breakfast tacos are always a home run. My favorite is the sausage, bacon, potato, egg and cheese burrito. It's been our go to breakfast spot for a few years. Highly recommend it.

    This place is the definition of a hole in the wall and the food is unbelievably good. The chorizo plate is to die for and it's cheap cheap cheap!

    The street tacos are some of the best around. They also have the Coke from Mexico that is made with real sugar.

    Try the green table salsa/sauce! You won't regret it! I love how it's slightly creamy

    This place is a hole in the wall taqueria, but it is delicious. The hot sauce is amazing and the food is cheap and better than any of those big name "tex-mex" places around.

    Styrofoam Dishes. Plastic silverware. No fountain drinks. Imitation cheese queso. Decent tacos for the price. You would be better off going 2 more miles down Josey and hitting up Fuzzy's Tacos.

    Their street tacos are pretty darn good and this is coming from a Mexican. I haven't tried anything else but I'm sure I will soon.
