    What the ((*&*^ a great cheap taco stand in Pasadena!!! BOOYAA! Get Some!!! *CHOMP*CHOMP*CHOMP* This place definitely made me and the munchkin happy when we stopped in for lunch recently.

    We got Al Pastor, Chicken and Carne Asada. The Asada actually had some flavor unlike 99% of the taco places that I have been to. The chicken was moist and tasty as well. Definitely how you want it. The Al Pastor was quite enjoyable as well. The munchkin and I were here on a daddy and daughter date before watching a movie of her choosing.

    So the place screams standard street taco taqueria. Definitely worthwhile to go to once or twice. It appears from some of my friends reviews that it didnt used to be that good. but when I was here it was flavortown or flavorcity... take your pick. We definitely enjoyed the joint a lot.

    Pro Tip: Park across the street on the street in the free parking area as it is shaded and wont make your vehicle a sweltering hotbox.

    A bunch of parking in the lot and a taco truck may be roaming around on the weekends with even cheaper tacos at $1.25. The normal price was $1.35. They have a bunch of options and you can get all the traditional taqueria grub here.

    So if you havent ever been or been in a while, it may be worth a try again sometime...

    Great Tacos
    Great Price
    Excellent Service.

    This is definitely one of the best places to come for a late night snack. The server made a mistake when taking my order (he gave me 4 tacos when I only requested 3) so he said "ON THE HOUSE."

    How cool is that?

    Go to this place if you ever get the munchies in Pasadena.

    a taco stand for the truck i love. This is basically the stand that is equivalent to the truck, except since it's an actual restaurant location - they have more options.

    I kind of stumbled on to this joint. But it's nice being able to go there at all hours for some great tacos, nachos, burritos and sopes. I think they also have menudo on the weekends.

    Good food - try the potatoes with chorizo as your meat choice. Yum. But my go to still is the chicken or the carne asada, just like on the truck.

    The Sopes are good as well. your choice of meat. pretty standard sope.
