    Eat a gator taco in front of the PBR T-Rex painting at the bar. This is what it must have been like to order a taco back in the Jurassic period.

    These Tacos are mediocre. The price is unacceptable but people pay it anyway because they have no idea what a good taco is. Typical Americans.

    A Meme's punch card with 5 punches has been placed at Jose Marti Park under a piece of tile on the lightpost to the left of the Isla De Cuba sign. Stop by and pick up if you're in the area.

    Ask for the sweet & spicy sauce. It's so good that they have to keep it in the back bc people steal it.
