    Their small grill and constant traffic means you're always getting steak cooked and then chopped to-order. It's hands-down one of the best meat and tortilla options in a meat and potatoes town. Read more

    This place is the truth. Steak is perfectly grilled and juicy. No extra fillers in the burritos like beans, cheese or sour cream. Cash only but it's worth paying $3 ATM FEE to withdrawal cash.

    The carne asada is great. They put a good char on it so you get that nice grilled taste. Always get multiple green sauces; you can never have too much of that.

    Tacos, burritos, and the chips are great! It's usually busy and they occasionally miss some things, but it's totally worth the hassle.

    The nachos are pretty good. Skip the chorizo, it's kinda dry. Can't go wrong with anything carne asada. La lengua is pretty good too.

    Great burritos and tacos. Asada is the most notable, but great al pastor and chorizo as well.

    Tacos are really good! A tad bit expensive tho but good. They had no horchata at the time so couldn't try it.

    Tacos are pretty good here... The beans & rice are the best... I think they add crack to the beans...only explanation for why I crave them so badly.

    No unnecessary fillers here. I recommend just onions, cilantro, and if you feel bold, avocado in your burrito.

    Freshest tasting salsa ever. Al pastor tacos were borderline bland, and one had a quarter-sized hunk of fat in it. Rice and beans were decent.
