Each time I have visited the serving staff has been attentive and service has been prompt. The portions are more than adequate and the salsa choices are very tasty. The beer options are good and prices are fair. Live music at times.

We love tacos el Norte. Their prices are reasonable and their food delicious. We visit often. The pozole soup available on the weekends is outstanding.
