    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.

    Pozole soup cures all ills. Decor is kitschy fun but sitting outside is best

    Insanely delicious food. Very friendly staff that make you feel very welcomed. As soon as you walk in it's a mash between 80's memorabilia, and of course, Mexican themed decorations.

    Carnitas tacos are the best. Flautas aren't bad either. The chips they give you when you first sit down are great.

    The food is amazing. The carnitas tostada is probably my favorite dish in JC. I do wish they had a different salsa to go with their chips.
