    Everything is good. Everything. Long lines by 6 on the weekends but worth every second.

    Super disappointing for a 9.0 rated restaurant. Best I can say is carne asada and beans were decent. Fish used in tacos definitely just from frozen. Rice was dry. Corn tortillas ok. Kind of cheap.

    Tried fish taco they tasted like fried fish sticks wrapped in a tortilla. Churros were old. Not at all authentic

    Very fast and infinitely better than the casual atmosphere would suggest. Great tacos!

    Great fish and carnitas tacos. Horchata had a little too much cinnamon (kept sticking my straw into full-on paste at the bottom) but was tasty.

    BEST FISH TACOS EVER (double deep fried). Brkfst burrito is best with CHORIZO & charge your cell phone with the many outlets here while you wait for your food. It takes a while but it's worth it!

    Above average. The polo asado was tasty. The beans while a bit salty had good consistency and flavor.
