As its name suggests, the restaurant serves up a wide variety of tacos, as well as burritos, quesadillas, and taco bowls.

Tacos come with either 6-inch corn or flour tortillas, as well as multiple choices for protein, including fried fish, bacon, house-made chorizo, shrimp, carnitas, and fried chicken, among others.

Burritos include the same proteins, and come stuffed with Mexican rice and black beans, which also make up the base of the bowls.
