OC Weekly's Description
Named after a Michoacán rancho that has sent thousands of its residents to Orange County, the colorful restaurant makes the best tacos in the county. They deviate from taco protocol by using full-sized corn tortillas and pile on chunks of your choice of grilled meat. The salsa is extraordinary, a dark-red lava extract whose burn factor is unknown outside Paricutín.
Tips from foursquare
Kim's pork tacos are to die for!
Its all about the pork!!
Veggie tostada or burrito are my go-tos here.
damn it smells soooooo good out here!
Try the tacos de cameron. They are huge and really tasty.
