    Solid tacos from $2.25 to $3. Not super authentic, but tasty. Rusty tace is a saucy Al Pastor. Brisket, Picadillo and Fish are all solid. Salsas are not so flavorful, habenero brings the heat.

    Now that the locals sold out to a chain food is okay, but nothing to write home about. SO Many other great taco joints in Dallas.

    I liked the venue. The tacos themselves are nothing terribly special. They are tasty, though.

    After you've scarfed 30 of their savory tacos, the "fried peach taco" (more like an empanada) is worth saving some room for.

    Don't underestimate the fried chicken taco. Also the default taco is with a corn tortilla. You have to ask for a flour one.

    Tacos were good. The place was packed but the wait was short. $2 bucks a taco is a great price for homemade. The fish was good but the Rusty and Raja were awesome. The salsa was great.

    Ok, I'm a fan! Great home made tacos for $2??? Can't bea it! First Friday was a zoo... This place will likely simmer down so waits won't be so long... During the week it wasn't so busy.
