Do you make your tortillas? How big are they?

Yes, we make our ~5.5” flour tortillas in-house daily. Unfortunately, we don’t have enough kitchen space to make corn tortillas, but we try to source them locally whenever possible

What type of tortilla will my taco be served on?

It’s traditional to serve Breakfast tacos on flour tortillas and Day tacos on corn tortillas. We honor that tradition by serving all of our Breakfast/Brunch tacos on flour tortillas while serving our Day tacos on corn tortillas. We’re happy to swap out any tortillas upon request.

How many tacos should I order?

Our tacos are both delicious and filling because of the larger ~5.5” flour and corn tortillas we use and the filling we put inside. Typically 2-3 tacos are plenty per person, depending on every individual's hunger level and desired appetizers.

Do you provide salsa with every taco?

Yes, we provide ~2 ounces of salsa verde with most tacos. Day taco exceptions include our Birria tacos (comes with consomme for dipping), Pork Adobe (pork stew that has lots of flavor and moisture from cooking), and Chili Colorado (beef stew that has lots of flavor and moisture from cooking). Breakfast taco exceptions include our Heuvos Rancheros because it’s served with ranchero salsa. 

Please add additional salsa to your order if you desire more. Options include our salsa verde, salsa roja, and arbol salsa (spicy)!

Do you offer vegan and vegetarian options?

Yes, we offer quite a few vegan and vegetarian options. 

We offer four vegetarian taco options for breakfast, including the El Classico, Champion, Huevos Rancheros, and Potato. All of these tacos can easily be made vegan by making some minor adjustments, including switching from flour to corn tortillas, removing the scrambled eggs, removing crema and queso fresco, or removing cheese or substituting vegan cheese. 

For lunch/dinner, we offer a vegan taco named El Vegano, and two vegetarian tacos called Senor Potato and El Jardinero. Our vegetarian tacos can be made vegan by making minor adjustments or substitutions. 

Our menus include vegan, vegetarian, gluten-friendly, and spicy icons to help navigate our offerings. Please inquire about any menu items if you have any questions.

Do you offer gluten-free or gluten-friendly options?

Yes, we offer gluten-friendly options but not gluten-free because some menu items are made with gluten in our kitchen. Please look for our gluten-friendly menu icons, ask questions, and inform us about your needs.

Can you accommodate allergies?

Yes, we can easily accommodate most allergies. We don’t serve tree nuts or seafood/shellfish at this time. We have menu items containing soy, dairy, and gluten, so please look at our menu icons for guidance and communicate with us to accommodate your specific needs.

Are you kid friendly?

Yes, we are family owned and operated and love to welcome families and kiddos. We have breakfast and lunch/dinner kids menus, crayons for drawing, high chairs, kids cups, a changing station, and stepstools in our bathrooms. We can easily accommodate strollers and have room to park bikes and scooters outside as needed.

Do you offer deserts?

Yes. We offer unique and delicious churro cookies made by Scratch Family Bakery, another fantastic Five Points business. We recommend adding a scoop of vanilla ice cream and cinnamon dust to every churro cookie for maximum dessert happiness.

Do you offer catering?

Yes, we proudly cater our breakfast and lunch/dinner menus. Please visit our Pre-Orders & Catering Page for more information and to submit a catering request.

Do you take reservations? Do you have a Yelp Waitlist?
