    Come for the best Mexican-style cuisine in Vermont (highly rec the fresh fish tacos & pork belly tacos), stay for some of the best craft beer anywhere. They also have an NES you can play at the bar!

    Everything is great, make sure you get carnitas on your order. Personal favorites are the Cubano or the burrito but you really can't go wrong with anything. Sauces are only for the adventurous though

    Tried this place out a few years ago while in Vermont for Stellafane. I loved their burritos and house made kimchi. Also, try some of their house made hot sauces.

    Luchadors, moustaches, pork belly, Lawson's Liquids, tacos, Heady Topper and longboards. This is heaven.

    Unique one of a kind sauce concoctions made weekly, 8-10 were outstanding. They have made over 1000 batches throughout their 3 years of business.

    The carnitas Big Daddy Fatty was tender, and exploding with flavor. The house assortment of hot sauces brought it to the next level.

    Taste all the hot sauces before you decide to cover your tacos. They are really good, but some of them are really hot!

    Call ahead and get the family taco platter with carnitas and al pastor. Take it home after a long day of skiing and feast.

    Mad tacos here. Great selection of beer on tap, seitan enchiladas are actually good, if a bit dry.

    Yam tacos are surprisingly good, even for a non vegetarian. Carnitas were okay, greasy and needed salsa for flavor.
