Yelp review: “This place is really good! It is casual and perfect for my college life stature of living! I got two tacos for 3 bucks, and later realized they had a special: 5 tacos for 4 dollars!!
The tacos are amazing because they are completely handmade, fresh, and steaming when served on a foam plate. You can tell all of the ingredients are cut up and freshly served. I am very satisfied my new favorite spot!”
