Spent the last 5.5 years in Mexico and yet this place amazed me. Very tasty, great service, friendly atmosphere. Never had duck in a taco before - delicious. Also fried avocado. Yummy. Only wished they also offered Jamaica tea and flour tortillas otherwise perfect.

After three years in France, my first stop for Mexican food was my old favorite, Cacao. A GIGANTIC serving of guacamole was conveniently served in a plastic container ready to cover and take home to go. The serving was easily enough for four people and...More
