Review


We tried a LOT of different tacos, drinks & desserts here & everything was fantastic & safely GF. Our favorites were the duck carnitas taco, the enchilada potosina, the smoked cabbage taco, & beet “tartar” tostada. Wanted to try the tuna tostada, as I heard that one is really good, too. Kids loved the bean & cheese tacos, but one kid didn’t like the cheese they use (panela cheese). Both liked the duck fat refried beans so much that I couldn’t get a taste.

We sat in the big yard behind the building at well-spaced picnic tables with umbrellas. Kids had a biggish grassy lawn to play in while we talked. Was like being in someone’s nice, relaxing backyard.

Note: prices are not cheap, but the food is high quality & totally worth it. Just go into it knowing it’s a treat night out & that your meal will cost more that at other taco stands but that’s okay because these tacos are not your typical taco stand tacos.
