If you want affordable, delicious Mexican food with a southern/local twist.. This is it. This is one of our favorite places to grab a taco. We really enjoy Tuesday's for the half price queso!

Only lived in Durham for 2 years, found this place a while back, now I always bring family here when they visit. Best authentic Mexican food around! Scallop & pork belly tacos are amazing. Beautiful outdoor seating as well as indoor! Always a great time!
