    Nick's Way tacos are totally legit! The carne asada is the way to go! The veggie and guacamole is a better way to go since the chips are a bit hard.

    Food's pretty much identical to Nick's over on Polk, probably because Nick opened Tacko too... If you're not in the mood for actual tacos, try the Carne Asada Quesadilla, be generous with the salsas!

    The chips & salsa on the side is a must, they give you a lot. California Burrito is great. The tacos are tiny, but SUPER good.

    One of my favorite burritos in the city. Get the one with French fries in it, and a $3 Dos Equis on Thursdays

    Try the Nick's Way Carne Asada Taco - Appropriately named and tasty. Soft tortilla around a crispy tortilla. Guac is excellent.

    Avoid the temptation to splurge on the lobster roll; mine had so little meat as to be completely overwhelmed by the bun and the generous dousing of butter.

    Pretty much the only place in the city (Mission doesn't count cuz of hipsters) that has California burritos. Like a transport to San Diego all over.
