This is our favorite Mexican restaurant in Roanoke. Casual atmosphere with inside and outside seating. Very generous portions of meat in all the Tacos. Excellent quality and tasty, not boring. Happy hour is good and Margaritas are made fresh one at a time. Many add in flavors if you choose. We take visitors here for not the usual Taco dinner.... More

Great casual setting with full service bar if you want or completely family friendly too. The whole street is casual and family friendly with a great dessert stop down the way. These tacos were really good--kids love theirs too!

Was really excited about getting "authentic" Mexican tacos, so I went here on a recommendation. I ordered the brisket tacos and the rib-eye tacos. Both meats had no flavor and were dry. They say they use home made tortillas, but if I had even seen someone making these, I still would have thought they were store bought. I also ordered... More

Good tacos with a twist. Wide variety of tacos to chose from, very simple but tasty. Fun atmosphere with cold drinks.

I would definitely recommend this place when visiting the unique dining capital of Texas. If you are going for Mexican food this is definitely the better place to go. Their beans and rice we a little cold when we went, but the tacos are SO good that was pretty easily overlooked.

First time visit, we will be back, my wife had the Ribeye tacos and I had the Pulled Pork, both were wonderful, there is only one place I have found better, and that was at Torchy’s in Austin. The Avocado Fries were very good, wish we had ordered more, and to top it all off was a COLD iced down... More

I have eaten at some very good restaurants during this trip and this is my favorite so far. Food was great! Loved the tacos! Fresh and tasted great. Laid back atmosphere that seemed to be family friendly. I have really enjoyed eating in Roanoke the past two nights...may have to head that way again tomorrow.

This is one of my favorite walk up restaurants. The brisket taco is so delicious and I love the fried avocado slices. Last visit we went on a Saturday night and they had a good live band. I love their margaritas and they are not too expensive. They also have a couple outdoor benches. We are definitely going back again... More

This place has great happy hour specials and selections. Tacos are a la carte for the most parts, unless you get one of the "platters". Fried avocado is a must try and the ceviche is great.

I wasn't real impressed with the tacos but the cobb salad was huge. You have to purchase the chips and salsa seperately. We waited quite a while for our food. The peopel were very nice.
