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

    Bring cash since they don't take credit cards. Well worth the wait if the line is out the door.

    Everything Mexican, eat it all. I love it so much!

    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.

    Lengua tacos!

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

    Omg... best carne asada on the northside. Hands down. The meat is charred perfect and it's so fresh, seasoned and chopped right there.. oh man. Chips are like fresh crunchy crack! Its just amazing.

    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

  • Kevin Y.

    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.

    Kevin Yee · September 3, 2012
  • Christopher C.

    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.

    Christopher Craddock · March 26, 2012

    You can't miss here. Chicken burrito is a healthy staple. Al Pastor burrito is so flavorful. Steak tacos excellent as well.

    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.
