Yum super Yum Yum! This place is pretty delicious. The service is nice, they give you a smile and greet you when you come in. You order at the cashiers and you get a number. The seating is picnic like benches, maybe having five long picnic table benches where you share seats with others. When you order your dishes, they come plain with no garnishes. There is a garnish bar where you can put all the sauces to your hearts content. I must warn you, the spicy sauce is truly spicy! The guacamole sauce is probably one of my favorites and it is not too salty. They have little cups on the side if you want to take some to go or add it when you sit down. By the entranceway, that is where you have your water cups and you serve yourself with water. They also have utensils there. Everything is pretty much self serve and you make it the way you like it. The food they have a small selection, but all the selections are great. The cheese fondue type of dish is amazing! That is if you like cheese. All their tacos are made in house I believe. It taste different, it doesn't taste like it is preserved and prepackaged at some factory. If it is, then they must have gotten it pretty fresh because it does not crumble in your hand when you try to pick it up. Also, their food items there are not greasy. Sometimes when you have tacos that are grilled, they have a greasy layer due to the fact that it needs to be re-moisten from packaging. Here, there is no grease, that's why I believe it is made in house. At least it tastes like it is. I will be returning here to dine!

Excellent. Tacos were good sized and tasty. Service is fast, even when the place is busy. My tacos Al Pastor were off the hook and, IMHO, much better than their vaunted carne asada. Note: Cash Only

Cash only. Order at the counter, they will give you a number, & your food will be dropped off at your table. Ordered: -carne asada vampiro: meat was juicy not dry, but not much flavor.. Just tasted like a quesadilla with meat. -cachetada w/chicken: this had ALOT of flavor. Would get this again. -full service salsa bar with lots of good options without it being TMI.. Had a very upset stomach later that night & so did my gf (we ate nothing else). Was is that salsa that had been sitting out for who knows how long??

The vampiro was so good! This place is a great go to for mexican food in the LA area. The vampiro was very cheesy and the meat was well marinated. There is a salsa bar for you to pick anything you want to top your food choice!

Pretty good food if you're in the area looking to grab a quick bite. Its not the best I've had but it is decent. It is a small restaurant with parking on the streets so no need to worry about meters. The Horchata and the shrimp taco was the highlight for me and the salsa bar is pretty cool. Not a must have to drive for but great for a grabbing quick meal.

Went today for lunch. It was my first time. Got the 7 something combo that has 3 tacos and a drink, they told me that if I paid 2 more dollars I could get refill which i thought was cool. Got my refill and I wanted more to drink I was thirsty and the stupid employee said no that she couldn't give me anymore and she was only offering ice! I mean it's just dumb that I payed 2 more dollars it should be unlimited refill!! Not going back, stingy place and very pricey!!
