I love this place. The tacos are creative and delicious. I have lived in Southern California for a big chunk of my life and I love tacos. This is the best in Queenstown.

We ordered fish, chicken, beef and pork. It's super duper yummy. However with the price they are charging, it's very small portion. Not worth the price but it's really delicious.

These were the some of the best tacos I’ve ever had. I’ve had tacos all over the world and these are by far top 3. Staff were great to hang out with and a lot of fun. The tequila was pretty great too.

Hi - yes, the hot bit is the sauce on the top, so you just don't put it on! Just tell the guys you don't like hot and you'll be good.
