    Horrible place to visit for after club grub. The line is ridiculous, the ordering doesn't make sense with different lines for different meets, and the drunk people are annoying AF. Nothing like TJ.

    Their tacos are too bad. You will waste your time in the line their beef it’s not like a real beef. Too salty and fatty.

    The food moved me to Mexico. Good price and quality. However, the way to order the food is a mess.

    Get a mula (Quesadilla sandwich) or Carne Asada Fries. Adobado tacos are amazing. Horchata or Orange Bang are yummy.

    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!

    Everything is good here only problem is they pile on ice cold salsa onion and cilantro on you're tacos and there cold by the time you sit down to eat them.

    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!

    This place is amazing. Adventurous eaters looking for authenticity, look no further. Ordering can be confusing but staff is friendly so just go for it. Drink machine tucked into back corner. No beer.

    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.
