    Get a mula (Quesadilla sandwich) or Carne Asada Fries. Adobado tacos are amazing. Horchata or Orange Bang are yummy.
  • Flora C.
    Tacos are just okay. Wait is incredibly long. We got the tacos Asada and abodaba. Not super impressed.

    Tasty loaded fries (adobada). Great, mellow guacamole. The tacos al pastor are good. They're small, so order accordingly.

    My husband is from Chihuahua & loved these. He got in the lengue line & I got in the pastor line, he probably got 2 of each from his line & 1 from my line. A DEFINITE MUST! See the "line" tip above.

    The Trumpo has the al pastor...very flavorful & not spicy. My son is super picky & got the al pastor quesadilla & is already begging to go back.

    Delicioso! It's very busy seemingly around the clock. They should put tables outside. My son is super picky & didn't want to go but now can't wait to go back!

    I'm from Mexico City. And oh, my, I can tell that those are one of the best tacos I've ever tasted. Tijuana style, a little different from the ones we are used to, but still awesome. Give it a try!

    The one on The Strip closed down! : ( Totally worth the trip to get to this one. Lengua and Cabeza are my faves. Ironically, Carne asada is the weakest of the offerings, but still really good.

    Don't be scared away by the long lines and packed seating, both clear out quickly. And there are 3 different ordering lines, each for different items, then a final fourth line to pay and grab a drink.
