    Very authentic! Fresh salsa (nice and spicy), aguas frescas (I tried the jimica which was amazing), and THE BEST tacos. Unbelievable value for the price. Watch out for the hot sauce!

    What a great little find. Could be one of the best Taco joints in the city!

    It can take a while to get your food, but just chill out and wait–it will be worth it. I’ve had the shrimp cocktail and the mixed parrillada–both generous and delicious. Don’t expect to sip on a beer or margarita as they don’t serve alcohol, but you can enjoy your meal with a Topo Chico or a Mexican soda. If you want authentic food in Oak Cliff, check this place out.
