Latin American Restaurant

“One of the FEW authentic Mexican food spots in the area. The taco truck is attached to a little Mexican market where you place your order, pay, and take your ticket to the other side. There, they prepare your order. Their taco hours are 3p- 8p but the market is open earlier if you would like to try their baked goods which almost ALWAYS sell out before 3.”

Liquor Store
