    Food is generally great but avoid the lobster roll at all costs - way overpriced and not tasty
  • Elliot C.
    The food is delicious and they have a huge selection of chilli sauces to try.

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

    Solid mini tacos (beef and pork were great, wasn't a fan of the chicken)

    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.

    The chicken is the only weak item in the otherwise excellent ingredient list.

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

    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!

    Re: cash only whines. Cash only means that the owners don't like giving their profits to credit card cos. it does not mean they are evading taxes. The lack of a POS system would indicate tax evasion.

    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.

    Going healthy? ask for the burrito bowl, not on the menu, but they make a good one.

    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.
  • Baldvin (bmson) S.
    Don't do complicated math here. The girl at the cash register is not the sharpest knife.
  • Anne-Michelle F.
    A great group of people running this place. Keep it up!

    One of, if not THE best, collections of hot sauce in town. Try a new one, you might like it.

    Place your order by phone and come pick it up. The guy at the register is super slow.
