    Some of you must be descendants of Simon Cowell.

    From where? Looking for more decent Mexican place in the Bay. Been going to Island Taqueria in Alameda a lot.

    Went once. Didn’t like it. Felt like it was more for the after clubbing crowd. And they got alcohol in their system making it tastes better than it actually is.

    I would be too. Every taqueria should have their own in house salsa. Makes you wonder what else they slack off on.

    How long did it take for you to get your order? That’s my only complaint is they are made to order

    Why's that a complaint? You'd rather they be sitting for hours?

    Yeah a little disappointing. It wasn't cheap either, that plate costs $14-15.

    My favorite are the shrimp tacos, but it is only served as a special on Friday's.

    Was just looking through the pics on Yelp. The Tortas look good too but it seems like they don’t offer burritos. Maybe I’ll check it out Friday night instead of Saturday and order the shrimp tacos if that is what you recommend. The shrimps look big.

    I like just about every item there. But I should point out that the food is not the richest in flavor and people are divided over this. Some love it and others hate it for this reason. But it is made this way to not mask the fresh ingredients.

    Thanks for the heads up. Most of my meals are pretty simple and straight forward. As long as this place is fresh and brings out the authenticity of their food, I should be happy.

    You’re questioning the authenticity of this stuff?
