    The devilish imp reigns supreme over the Drag's taco scene, with inventive combinations that appeal to the masses and salsas that are like crack to the endorphin-deprived.

    If you're looking for an amazingly, greasy, delicious, absolutely-bad-for-you taco that will blow your mind ask for the Ace of Spades- not on the menu and guaranteed to ruin your diet!

    Once I saw the fried avocado taco on the menu, I had to have it! I don't know if I'll be able to go again & stray from it. Also, excellent chips & queso with a kick!
