The quesadillas are boooooomb.
The quesadillas are boooooomb. So are the taco salads. I actually feel full after eating their salads, and even eat them without any cheese and it's still delicious! My hubby likes their tacos & burritos, both of which are very tasty. The chile relleno was a bit of a miss (the cheese is more of a solid block than the stretchy melty k ... read more

I tried a chille rilleno burrito for the first time and the verdict is...yummy. The burrito was loaded and ended up being a very satisfactory meal. The chille relleno itself was very tasty and they did not skimp on the avo which was great.  I am a fan!

I like this place. Generally I don't go out for Mexican food and write about it on yelp. I grew up in a kinda traditional family where homemade Mexican food was almost always availy from my mom, siblings to parties and functions. I usually like to try different dishes or foods. With that said. Th

Just ate the unholy creation El Jefe Taco and you must stop driving, flip a u turn and come get one. It's what happens when a quesadilla, a taco and a Squeeze Inn cheeseburger had a love child. It's amazing and you must try one.

The chili verde is hot and spicy. The corn tortillas are killer and I think they make them there. Even tried a chili relleno burrito which was surprisingly good. Didn't realize that I really liked chili relleno. Small place that can get crowded though so expect a wait during non covid times. Definitely call ahead nowadays.

The food and flavors are amazing at this restaurant.  The corn tortillas are handmade, and have the perfect texture that you can't get from store bought tortillas.

I've finally found a go-to place for Mexican food! This was the best I've had in years. It was even good the next day. I got super nachos with carne asada and a chile relleno plate. Both were very good and I really liked the carne asada. I'm looking forward to going back and trying other things.

All around fantastic taqueria. Excellent flavor, great variety, and terrific value for the money.

The tacos were superb, I'm basing my opinion off of the AL PASTOR tacos, they're not your typical Al pastor tacos , they are very mildly spicy and cooked a bit more like carne asada and were marinated with the pineapple instead of garnished with it!
