It's not fancy. Paper plates, plastic cups even. But who cares? Not we. Come for really good tacos and other interesting bites. The ingredients are upscale, e.g., line caught fish, local, antibiotic-free meats and organic, local produce when possible. Ambiance is cool and modern.

In terms of the menu the appetizers include spicy cucumbers, ceviche, organic greens and flautas. Tacos come in varying flavors such as grilled pork, chorizo, grilled chicken, seasonal veggies, shrimp, calamari and fish. We like that bigger salads, and "bowls" are also offered. "Bryan's Bowl" includes beans, rice, salsa, veggies, and choice of meat or more veggies. The Por Que Plate is for those eschewing the taco shell carbs. You can choose meat or veggies with beans, salad, and/or rice. Other menu items: quesadilla, tamales, and various sides (beans, rice, salsa, pico de gallo, guacamole).
