    The tacos here are simply amazing! There is something so addictive about them that I've gone to Mema's 3 times this past week!! Will make an effort to try everything on the menu ;).

    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.

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

    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.
