Bomb tacos and great service, 1/20/2015
Reviewer: Erick M from Goleta, CA
This place has a slab of al pastor with pineapple spinning around a furnace like the best Mexican street taco stands in Mexico. SO BOMB. This place has lightly crisped fresh fish tacos with cabbage and all the trimmings and they are huge tacos. SO BOMB This place has HOT SALSA that will BURN YOUR MOUTH to DEATH. SO BOMB!!! (there is mild salsa but who does that?) The dude with the mustache makes the BEST TACOS IN SB. He made me a bombass fish taco that looked almost like a tostada it was filled so high with TONS of fish and a phat al pastor too. I ate them both. SO BOMB!!! And the fish was fresh and they had 3 kinds to choose from including SHRIMPS! This is a gem of a mexi street food style joint and I highly recommend it because it's SO BOMB!!

Delicious, friendly & fast!, 8/21/2014

Stopped by after reading about the opening in your Independent column. Both the chicken and pork tacos I had were tasty and unique. For $2 each it was the perfect amount of food, piled high with veggies and great seasoning. The Al Pastor was especially delicious with pineapple and caramelized onion. The salsa bar is fresh with a nice variety. I was especially impressed to hear they have wild shrimp and local fish (including halibut and sea bass!) on the menu. Both were sold out but I can't wait to go back and try them.
