    The qeusabirria tacos w/consume was sooooo good here!! The shells had a nice fried crunch to them while the dipping broth was very flavorful on it's own. The Birria added to the Tapatio ramen was super flavorful as well. The only thing I would not get again was my pork tamale that consisted mostly of masa and hardly meat. The al pastor taco was juicy and flavorful though. On the note of the size of the place, it does appear quite small inside, perhaps less than 10 tables inside and about 3 outside. If this place is packed, you may find yourself waiting a good half hour or longer. Would definitely return and highly recommend the birria here!

    We stopped in for lunch on a Sunday afternoon. There was an older gentleman who was very nice and helpful. are we just came over and took our order. A little difficult because of the language barrier but was a little surprised to have to use Google translate for beans.. Drinks came slowly after asking. Food was good, no complaints there. The high top tables are very wobbly. When the waitress came it seemed a little expensive but that happens. She showed us the bill on a little payment pad. And we added a little tip. Despite the mediocre service. After the printout came we saw there was a automatic gratuity fee. So with the tip that we added not realizing that was part of the number it was almost 40% gratuity. I realize we probably should’ve caught it but we weren’t really planning on doing math. We ask the waitress who was completely lost as she didn’t speak English but the nice guy who sat us called their manager or owner who explained fairly rudely that everyone is charging mandatory gratuity these days and would make a one-time exception but that it was our fault basically. I’m not a big fan of the old saying, the customer is always right, but on the flipside of that there’s no place to be rude especially about something like this. The waitress came back and reluctantly and rudely gave us the over paid amount in cash. I don’t for see a situation in which we would be back.

    I thought the food was very satisfying. I got mine plain with lettuce and it was still very flavorful just from the meat. Corn tortillas were not soggy or anything.

    The food and drinks are good. We’ve ordered there on multiple occasions, both catering and take out. I would tread lightly with their Ramen Combo and Torta though. Placed an order for pick up today: 1) The Torta didn’t come with avocado, as advertised. Pico de gallo style tomatoes (5 total), easy mayo, light lettuce. Very bare. 2) The Ramen Combo didn’t come with Consommé. When I called the restaurant to let them know our order only had noodle (and no lime or cilantro - we added the cilantro) the gentleman was adamant the Ramen Combo had consommé (the soupy part). I assured him there was no soup and only noodle. He replied with: “ Yea I remember your order, i prepared it. There’s soup”.. They were nice enough to offer avocado for the Torta, and a new Ramen Combo for pickup, but I was done after that call.
