We have visited there twice on our holiday. We had the taco loco and was absolutely delicious and huge! Our service was great. There was a line but it went quickly. Our servers have been friendly and fun both times!

Our first night here and we had to go to El Fogon for the Pork pastor. Would highly recommend this restaurant. Much better and cheaper than anything on the fifth. Our meal with drinks and desert about 30 dollars Canadian.
