 My friends and I stopped here on our way from LAX since they were kind enough to pick me up after my flight. It was Taco Tuesday when we dropped by so all the tacos were $1, which I was certainly excited about considering my last Mexican meal was a fancy voyage in North Carolina and very wallet-draining. For a full meal, I only had to spend $4 - excellent! I grabbed a large horchata and was pleased to find that it was from a homemade batch. Though it was very heavy in cinnamon, I liked it a lot. No powder stuff for me please!

I got two fish tacos and a carne asada taco. They were about street taco sized but quite good. The fish was Baja style, fried and covered with some flavored mayo, shredded lettuce, diced onions, cilantro, and diced tomatoes. It was good and had a lot of meat considering the price. The carne asada was fresh with a bit of char that made it nearly perfect. Hefty on cilantro, it was a decent taco but certainly not as good as the fish one. The place itself was quite crowded and small on the inside but the food made up for the atmosphere; however, why would you trust getting Mexican food from a place that wasn't pretty crowded and very "Mexican"?
