The name may have changed, but this is still the same delicious Mexican fare that I crave almost every week. In the summer, especially, there is nothing like a plate of nachos with my wife after a hot day at work and yard work. She loves their margaritas. I’ll get a tea, of course, and we’ll sit on the porch and watch the world pass by over some dirty meat tacos.

Cheap, delicious food. Large portion sizes amd a fun variety of salsas and pickles available. Brings the culinary creativity of Durham to American Mexican food. Not what I'd call authentic, but tasty anyway. A bit loud, so not a great place to talk, but a fun place to hang out.

Absolutely delicious. They have so many meat options! Their guacamole is amazing and they have a great meat to rice ratio. Their sauce and toppings bar has a lot of options as well. The pickled onions and habaneros topping was tasty. The staff that I interacted with was kind also.

Better when it was Nana Taco. Prices are not posted for "premium meats" or "market price" so you don't know what the damage is until you finish ordering. You end up paying $12 or $13 for three tacos that are listed at $8. Also they forgot part of my order to go the other day, and the expediter with the glasses bumped my small child almost knocking him down and didn't even apologize. The spicy chocolate shake is not remotely spicy. Food is pretty good, but because of the aforementioned, not really worth going out of my way again.

Simply the best tacos in Durham. The pinto beans are smoky with bits of pork, the pork butt is salty, tender, and delicious, and the salsa bar has fresh toppings to bring it all together.What to get: pork butt tacos, pinto beans, and try all the salsas with some corn chips.

My goal is to try the entire menu at this place, because if the rest of the menu is anything like what I got last time, it would be worth every dime. Huge fan of this place, they don't go crazy with the toppings, it's just really good tacos. And definitely don't forget a side of street corn! I really wish I took pictures of the food, but my 6 month old daughter took more of my attention.
