    Ask for extra meat on your taco.....a dollar extra, but worth it!

    Eh, too over priced for beer that really isn't all great. Tacos look tiny & not filling for the price you pay. Save your money, and eat some place healthier for a better value in food

    Ghost chili for heat and duck taco for complex flavor, wash it down with a Green Flash.

    If you have the Ghost Chili Pork, you might want to follow it with the Duck. Cool your tongue off with the brie!
