Tacos come soft or crisp, with corn or flour tortillas, in half-moon shape or rolled, and even in salad form at this “hidden gem” and “perfect Mexican restaurant” (according to Yelp). The guacamole and fresh salsa get high marks, too, and the churros are “out of this world.”

As one visitor to this “amazing” and “friendly” restaurant in a Boca Raton suburb puts it on Yelp, “Big portions, very reasonable prices, great menu, good margaritas….” Octopus ceviche, poc chuc (sour-orange-marinated pork), fajitas, and crisp-fried tuna tacos are among the more unusual items on the menu.

Mexican street tacos with 10 different fillings plus three American-style tacos are on the menu at this restaurant just south of Atlanta. But it’s the Oaxacan specialties – like chicken in mole sauce and tlayudas (a bit like pizzas on oversize corn tortillas) – that make this place stand out. “The mole sauce was as rich as it looked,” reported a visitor from California on Yelp. “The beef tongue was tender without being mushy like many places. The hand made tortillas were icing on the cake.”
