Josh Woodward rates this 8 / 10:

Fairly typical Americanized Mexican fare, but done very well. The cheese enchilada was tasty - very smooth, and not too cheesy and stringy. The tamal was moist and flavorful. The taco was excellent - very meaty and fresh. I can't wait to try the premium tacos. The atmosphere is very casual (order at the counter, they bring it out) and super-friendly. And it's at the old Books on Main building, so you can have a surreal dining experience if you were a regular there. :)

The salsa bar is especially wonderful. As you're waiting for your food, you can grab some chips and choose from 7 different salsas. The Mango Habanero is especially recommended. I bought a jar ($3.99 for 8oz). They were running low, he asked if it was ok to wait because they had to process the fresh mangos. And you can really taste the difference.

The barbacoa taco special is ok, but the meat is too sweet and salty. I'd have liked it a little less "concentrated" and with a little bit of a sour balance. The shrimp taco special is good, but a little watery. They now have menudo on weekends! I can't wait to try.
