  1. "Here is my 2 cents on the food and chit chat. My food. A beef torta. This is a wonderfully tasty, large and reasonable price mexican sandwich. Torta $6...Tacos  $2   Quesadilla $3   Tamales $2.00

    "A nice touch was a free small serving of fresh fruit.

    "Chatter... This is a brick & mortar eatery recently open. It is owned/operated by the food truck folks of Tacos San Miguel. The original is located at the intersection of Del Prado/Pine Island in a parking lot. (cash Only)

    "The staff is wonderful. BUT be aware that Spanish is their primary language and operating a restaurant seems to be a new venture.

    "The food is fresh and high quality. They accept cash & credit cards at this location.

    "So if seeking great inexpensive chow this is the place." - Richard H.

  2. "Delicious!! I have tried every single taco! My favorite are the fish and the al pastor. These tacos are very simple. Corn tortillas, meat, onion, cilantro and add the green sauce! They put ample meat in these precious, perfect tacos. They have jarritos too. Eat to your hearts desire. You won't be disappointed. I'm so happy we live very close by! I hope they have tremendous success!" - Candy W.
