My wife is crazy about the chicken tacos, I like the carnitas tacos. Probably strange to some people but I enjoy the chili size, it reminds me of what I got when I was young. Usually very good service.

The flautas are good here. The guac is good. The sodas are huge. Can't speak to the alcohol because I don't drink. I wish the floor was a bit cleaner. The servers are always friendly.
