Managed to hit it a 2 weeks ago for lunch (no ball game, so it was fairly empty) and tried a few different soft tacos. They are probably 3 bites each, though fairly well piled as you can see from the picture. The fish ones were good though not as tasty as I thought they'd be (couldn't taste much of the fish); batter was extremely light which is a good thing (I thought the ones at P*cco were tastier, but they have more batter in comparison, so I'm not sure that's a good thing). The pastor traditionale was ok; I didn't taste pork that much. The chorizo was the best of the ones I tried...much spicier than other chorizos I've tried w/o being Pops salty. Tried the corn as well (picture didn't was misfocused unfortunately)'s a whole ear of corn w/ cheese on top; the corn wasn't as sweet as I expected from what folks have said.

All in all, the experience was ok. Parking in the area is horrible even w/o a game. The food came out 15min after ordering (probably because of the corn). The waitress (dressed like bar waitresses rather than mexican place waitresses) took care of us w/o problems and memorized the orders correctly. You'll need probably 4-5 to be full (the plate in the picture is a standard sized dinner plate so you can get an idea of how big it is).

Hmm...guess you always have to upload "square" pictures. The ones I uploaded were rectangular :-P
