The street tacos were very good with a fun presentation. However, our server seemed distracted. We were only table to not get chips and salsa and we had to order twice to get a beer. Service slow and they were not that busy.

One of the most delicious Burritos I have ever tasted. The women working there put a lot of love into every meal. If you like authentic Southwestern Mexican food, then this is the place to visit. Can’t wait to return.

This small and unassuming Restaurant is attractive on the outside but real kitchen on the inside. The food is so good and homemade. Very authentic. Service is fast. A few small tables on the inside and some outside. Highly recommend the marinated pork taco plate!

Great local spot. Authentic with great tasting tacos and burritos. Counter order with an open kitchen concept. Simple ambience with low prices and great food. Gets packed at lunch time with local people working in the neighborhood.

Friend and I sat at counter for quite awhile before anyone got to us -- wasn't exactly packed, either. Food was good, but strong on the stomach. Honestly, Tacos Selene is much better.
