Los Taquitos CenPho location

Hi All, we've visited the seconday location for Los Taquitos (16th St & Glendale) a few times now and I think it is time for a quick review...

Besides being WAY closer than the original on Eliott Rd, it's way less busy as well. They have recently launched some awesome happy hour deals ($1 tacos, $3 Margaritas)...which probably has to do with the lack of business. They are situated in sort of a hard-to-see and slightly off the beaten path location, so I'm hoping they don't struggle and eventually close because no one knows it is there (support your locals!! :) )
As far as the food goes, I think it is pretty close to the original Los Taquitos, so if you like their food you're probably going to like this location especially if it saves you $10 in gas.
The service has been super spotty, which is sad because there are rarely a ton of people in there - seems like almost every time I go in, I wind up with 2 burritos or 2 of the 3 varieties of tacos I ordered. They seemingly have a TERRIBLE cash register that requires an excessive amount of touchscreen use to enter and order...seems like every time you tell them what you want, they are tapping the screen for (not kidding) 20 seconds and then they say "so you wanted what kind of tacos?" It's like they have to enter a 50-character password and answer 5 security questions to turn the register on... but I digress...
Anyways, some of the original owners are in periodically and the service really steps up when they are on site. The food has always been what we expected, our fave being the al pastor tacos.
If you're in the area, which is strangely devoid of mexican joints (unless you count Qdoba or Ajo Al's), check it out -
