I tired a bunch of their different tacos, the fried Chicken, the pork, and one other. They were all very tasty. The meat was cooked nice, tender, still juicy but flavorful also. The different tacos (meat type) had different salsas and vegetables or pickled vegetables on top, which contrasted nicely with the meats. All very good. About 8E for 2 small tacos, so a little expensive, I'm used to paying about $2.5 for a bigger taco in California.

My one gripe is the service is slow. The turn around time from order/pay to when the tacos are ready is 5-10 minutes. Very slow. the staff should take a vacation and visit some tacqueria's in the USA, specifically LA, San Francisco, El Paso, Phoenix, Tuscon, and other cites in teh southwest USA. A 2 taco order is ready to go about 1-3 minutes after it has been paid for. And the more tacos you make, the more money you make. Tacos out Euros in.

Located in a corner in one of the back streets near the NL-Hotel district Leidseplein, we found it using GPS locater or else we would have got lost. Anyways, as soon as we reached there we asked for a table outside, the waiter was cooperative and asked us to pick the one we like. The restaurant has good vibes, and luckily it was not very crowded.

We ordered a 1L of frozen margarita, it was very cold, but it was just perfect for the weather on that day. We also ordered food, but the waiter didn't record the order and missed some items of our order.

The food was very tasty, it reminded me of the real Mexican tortilla and quesadilla, however the portions were little, which means you have to order more quantities of each dish. We were 4 people, and we paid around 95 euros. In my opinion the prices needs a rethink, or the portions needs to be resized.

Best of the all, is the Guacamole, it was amazing!

One reason I didn't give 5 stars to this restaurant is because they don't serve burrito!!!

Pictures on the website are not up to date and do not reflect current menu. The portions are small, you would have to order multiple items to make a meal which would add up very quickly.

Mediocre tacos. The place didn't smell its finest. Several items on the menu were unavailable. The sides came before the mains. They don't take visa or mastercard, only maestro.

Friendly staff, balanced price-quality ratio and simply delicious tacos. Standard not super spicy but can add extra spicy sauce When preferred.
