Worst waitress/cashier ever, unfriendly, stupid, doesn't even know how to count. Food was terribly overpriced. Cost-benefit-wise this is one of the worst places I have been to. But I'm from Europe - I'm used to Döner Kebap which is 100000 times better than this rubbish

I love allende's tacos. I used to live around the area and would love going there late at night. The tacos remind me of the kind you'd get at some taqueria in Mexico. The staff is great, always friendly and quick.

This little hole in the wall is the perfect place to find tasty mexican food.

Great Mexican menu choices prepared on grill in front of you as you wait. Tasty. Fresh. Do try the guacamole. I enjoyed my skirt steak. Utilitarian ambiance.

This is an unassuming place that serves delicious Mexican comfort food (tacos, burritos, tortas, etc.). The woman at the counter was so friendly and fun, she made everyone feel like a welcome friend. The hot sauce is a house-made recipe and definitely worth trying; taste it on a chip or a small part of your food before dousing everything in... More

The pork tacos are amazing. My mouth is watering just thinking about them. This place is generally a great value considering the neighborhood. The chips and salsa are confusingly pricey, though. The staff is really nice, and again... the pork tacos. Yum.
