Read the reviews on Yelp for more details on this locals-only Mexican restaurant in Pacifica. Itâ€™s a serve-yourself affair.
Grubgirl wanted to point out that the soft tacos qualify for cheap eats, since you can get one for $1.90 and it was pretty tasty. I got one with carne asada on it. Most tacos sold from trucks range in the $1.00 – $1.50 range, so for a helping surrounded by four walls, I was impressed by the price for the quantity of meat, white onion, and cilantro on top.
The salsa that came with the chips was mildly spicyâ€¦the salsa on the taco was not. So, if you like your tacos and Mexican food spicy in general, Iâ€™d go to the condiment counter and get a marinated pepper. (Note: Chips are extra, which is a little different. But for $1.90, there’s not a lot of margin, I suppose.)
Also note that the marinated pepper concoction, when I was there, only contained whole peppers. No slices of carrots, onion, or peppers were present. Using my plastic fork to try to slice the pepper proved difficult. So I ditched the attempt to be a dainty eater and just pierced the pepper and took a bite of it.
