Five sections of tacos, arranged by type of meat, vegetarian or egg are numbered on the menu and include fried paneer, fish and chips, Cuban pig and tikka chicken. Sides and whole rotisserie chickens are also available, the latter even has a separate back door. Margaritas, craft beer, and a variety of iced teas are there to drink.
