tacos on a plate


Many of our locations offer a complete made-to-order taquería behind the counter. Sample some of our authentic, slow roasted carnitas that have been seasoned with garlic, onion, orange, basil, and clove. It is sure to be some of the most tender meat you’ve ever tasted. We also offer a variety of homemade rojo and verde tamales that are rolled fresh daily and steamed to order. Don’t forget taquería favorites like tacos, burritos, quesadillas, tortas, and elotes.

Greek dish


Transport yourself to the Greek Isles with our authentic family recipes. Try our classic Greek chicken that is oven roasted and seasoned with fresh lemon and oregano. Taste our traditional pastichio with layers of thick noodles, beef, and topped with a béchamel cream sauce, similar to lasagna. And do not miss our char-grilled lamb chops that are cooked to perfection.
