    Rice and beans are not vegetarian. They are made with pork.

    As a native Angeleno, I'm so disappointed that this place co-opts the city. Terrible service, terrible drinks, don't even bother with this place.

    The barbacoa tacos are amazing (order them with the sauce on the side if you can't handle spice). Tostadas (I ordered carnitas) are also delicious!

    Solid taco spot in the heart of Jersey City. So many meat options! Make sure to ask how spicy the sauces are in your tacos, they can get up there.

    The staff is selfish and they really don't give you what you ask. It seems like "the client is NEVER right" at this place

    You will be ok here as long as you don't want anything special and you are ready to eat whatever they bring to you. #NotHappening

    Surprisingly good tacos on the east coast! Their margarita is ok, but the michelada is a bit over-the-top for my taste.

    Had a waitress argue bold faced with a member of our party with a food allergy. The abysmal service is wild but the fact folks on here come back is more so. Toss in some exceedingly mediocre food.

    Ask for extra spicy sauce. You won't regret it...until later at least. Goes well with an order of rice and beans or with any of the tacos or quesadillas.

    Cheap, authentic Mexican food. Grab a few tacos (the fish taco is my favorite!) and try to find a seat outside in the backyard.

    Pozole was fantastic!! The guacamole is 1 size fits all (too mild with no options to spice it up :(

    Solid authentic Mexican food. It gets very busy most days - quality grub draws a crowd - so be prepared to wait for a table... or avoid the wait and get take out delivered!

    Lamb and lengua (beef tongue) tacos are incredibly tender with just a touch of a spicy kick. Great brunch portions and a strong margarita. The perfect dive taco joint.

    The waitress was rude!! She ran after me for her tip and was nasty when I told her why she didn't get one. She took our order and never served us. We had to ask for our water, food and silverware :(

    Carnitas taco, absolute must. The $7 guacamole though, not worth the high cost IMHO, but maybe I just like my guac differently.
