The small place has limited indoor dining, but outside there’s a large patio and a few tables in the front yard. Take-out meals are recommended, depending on the weather.
The menu is small and offers street tacos, a taco salad, six tortas, nachos and burritos, all served in generous portions.
Nachos ($10) are a large plate of freshly baked fries topped with a choice of nine taco meats, topped with queso, jalapeños, pico de gallo and a scoop of guacamole.
The burritos are huge. The Sasquatch burrito ($10) comes with a choice of taco meats, beans and rice topped with lettuce and tomatoes. Are you very hungry? Go for the Abominable Burrito ($26). It’s three times the size of a regular burrito. Complete it within the time limit, currently 20 minutes, and the meal is courtesy of the house, plus you get your picture on the wall. Liquor license pending.
