Great Food for the money might be a little over served, you can easily make two tacos out of one. they also serve fresh seafood cocktails and most of their tacos come in a double tortilla quesadilla.

Place is crowded, has lousy service and the Tacos are marginal. Better off going to a smaller Taqueria that has better service and much better quality Tacos. There is a place called "La Corriente" on 6th & Flores Magon that is way better.

I does come here almost every month. Shrimp and Crispy Octopus. Price is twice the normal Tijuana tacos. For 20 USD you can have a good lunch for 2-3 persons. I always bring my visitor to this place.

Exelent! Shrimp Taco. Ask 1 Tortilla per and you can have about 3. The Crispy Octupus is a little heavy but it's good if you pick and share like popcorn. It's Family oriented.
