    Great tacos with plenty of spice and quality ingredients. Try the Egg & Chorizo Platter,  the Barbacoa taco and Beef tongue. Their fish taco is extremely delicious as well.

    One of the best taco places I've found in the city, even comparable to my previous local spots in SF. Prices are right and the atmosphere is lively. Large groups can be hard to seat due to size.

    Cheap tacos & margs. LA bar that also plays pretty in pink. What more could you ask for? No reservations but they will come get you from the bar next door when your table is ready.

    Tacos here are super cheap and 3 will certainly fill you up. Order the carnitas - slow cooked pork that is so tender it almost melts in your mouth.

    You would never think to order it, but the Cecina is a fantastic plate of salty, flavorful flank steak, chilaquiles which are essentially nachos, and beans. I order it every time.

    The lamb taco is unusual and outstanding. I also love the spicy house salsa. Pro tip: before 10PM you can do "take out" and eat at the bar next door.
