Rating & Review:
I wouldn't really know how the food actually tastes at this restaurant because both times I have stopped in they have gotten my order wrong. The first time it was because the cashier did not speak English that well, but didn't inform me of this (I speak Spanish), so my order came completely different than I had ordered. The second time they gave me tacos American style (lettuce and tomato) instead of Mexican (cilantro) and when we called and complained the manager said it was my fault that I did not specify. Funny, when my husband has bought tacos there they never ask him to specify... maybe because he looks Mexican whereas I do not. Neither of us want to eat at a restaurant where the customer is blamed.
