Had lunch with my family. The food was good and satisfying; but, we did not feel that we got a good value for the cost. Other taquerias in the area offer more than a couple tacos and a bowl of beans with their combo.

This isn't the place where young people go clubbing. Crazy Joe's is a place where you ride up on your motorcycle to meet some friends and catch some live music. Great place to be if you want to hang out with grown-ups to unwind.
