Got the Al Pastor that came with pineapples and the Baja. Cost is a bit on the higher side (around like $3-$4 per taco) and parking should definitely be done a bit away as it's crowded up in front. Seating isn't too bad but may be a bit tight.

This is a very busy restaurant that could definitely do better with more seating! As for the food, I got 2 tacos and they were more than enough to fill me! The tacos are pretty good, too! They have a nice little salsa bar and other condiments.

Absolutely delicious. Possibly best tacos I've ever had. My friends and I feasted here and I made my own DIY "carne asada fries" since I'm staying away from red meat. But obviously they have original carne asada fries and all that good stuff.
