Menu not spicy or seasoned like Papayagoes nearby, otherwise OK fare., Had take out fare only. Very close to Blue Jay Cinema Center & Jergensens Market in Blue Jay. Menu can be improved & enhanced alone for more business.

Nothing super bfancy here, honestly kind of plain. Fish taco was fine. Chips and salsa were best items. Maybe I should have hit the taco shop across the street but I was new to area and after long drive uphill you wonder what's there.
