We randomly heard about this place from a shop owner several miles north on our family road trip. We arrived, and the line was about 40 people deep. Took about 30 minutes to get up front. Very good, authentic Mexican food. Tortillas were being made...More

I really love this place. The first time I went there I stupidly ordered the tacos and like those people who said it was ‘terrible’ I did not think they were anything special. Unlike those people I stood at the counter to see what other...More

We love this simple but great Mexican taqueria. There is always a line up but it’s worth the wait. Their menu is unique and not american-Mexican. We’ve given up on trying any other Mexican restaurants.

There's a good reason that this was one of Julia Child's favorite restaurants, and there's a good reason there's always a longtime to get in. The food is extraordinary. If you're in the area, go!
