    Tacodeli: Where mashed potatoes meet the breakfast taco and make happy nom-nom sounds in our belly. The salsa bar's a nice touch, but we only have eyes for the Dona sauce, that fiery minx.

    The Tacoloco, filled with brisket braised until fall apart-soft in adobo sauce, then topped with guacamole, cilantro, queso, is a shining star in this menu and definitely worth trying.

    Akaushi Picadillo Taco: All ground beef tacos should model themselves after this one. HeartBrand Ranch ground Akaushi beef is aggressively seasoned with garlic, and caramelized onions add sweetness.

    What's not to love? The local ingredients and amazing flavors make for a mega party in your mouth. I haven't tried something that I didn't like here. It also helps that every employee here is awesome.

    Ignore the person who said there aren't vegetarian protein options. Beans, eggs, cheese, & more. Not vegan, but definitely vegetarian. Also 3-4 kinds of fish, plus shrimp & scallops for pescatarians.

    The Otto is awesome! The Doña sauce is fantastic, but not for the faint of heart. It's spicy enough that when I'm feeling stuffed up, I opt for that over decongestants. It's a delicious alternative

    favorite tacos are the guasabi tuna (guac, wasabi!) and the ceviche yucatan. Make sure you add some doña hot sauce to any of your tacos!

    Can't go wrong with the Otto and Cowboy. Go next door while you wait, to get a good cup of coffee.

    Definitely try the el conquistador if you like pork and add some green dona salsa from their salsa bar.

    There is no other breakfast taco than the Jess Special. The Jess Special is the only breakfast taco. Bow to the supremacy of the Jess Special

    Seriously, just throw a dart blindly at the menu. Can't really go wrong with much here. I'm partial to anything with mole and the agua frescas.

    Call ahead and pick up your order by entering the restaurant through the side door. It'll be ready by the time you get there.

    Hard to order something bad here, but my favorites are the Otto (breakfast & weekends), Cowboy & Akaushi Picadillo tacos.

    Best breakfast tacos I've ever had. Try a Vaquero and add the Habanero sauce to really wake you up.

    Ask for Some spicy pico on the side. It isn't listed on the menu, but it is delicious.

    Dona sauce. It's not a cream or avocado salsa, it's roasted garlic pulverized with peppers. It is awesome and you should eat it.

    I always tip for call in / take out because they never mess up my order and it's ready super fast. Vegan and pescatarian options.

    Sit on the patio to watch the countless idiots ignore the Do Not Enter signs to drive the wrong way on a One-Way and laugh as they get mad at the on coming drivers who are obeying the One-Way.

    This is the affluent, white person version of the breakfast taco. It's good, but this place is very busy and closes early

    Fantastico, but the to-go tacos always seem much smaller than those eaten in house.
