Breakfast Tacos are great

I regularly visit this place for breakfast & lunch tacos for the family. Today we ordered a variety of breakfast tacos including potato & egg, bacon & egg, chorizo & egg and chorizo and potato . I love their salsa and the variety of it. This place is a little overpriced when it comes to PARILLADAS but I still buy them at times because they are just delicious . Highly recommended!
