This is one of those itty bitty little taco joints but not to be missed. The carne Asada here is amazing! There is no fatty or grisly pieces at all. The tacos are perfect! Stop by and try! Cheers & happy eating!

Looking for a quick place to eat we found Chema's. This place is very basic, but the food makes it worth the stop. The tacos are authentic and tasty. We tried pollo, carne aside and al pastor. All were delicious. We had horchata as well....More

Great prices with consistent quality. Carne asada, chicken, Al Pastor are my favorite meats for the tacos here. Don't expect any chain-restaurant frills, just very basic, tasty tacos that will satisfy the palate.
