You can count on a colorful character like Sam Auen to take good old street food like tacos, shake them up, throw away all the rules, and create tacos that people travel miles to enjoy. His bacon chorizo is legendary, but you might want to try the Wasabi brisket or the Bulgogi.
Brunch, or as Sam calls it Brunchpocalypse, has its own menu, which features items like the ICBINBB (I Can’t Believe It’s Not Breakfast Burrito) with Poblano Potatoes Scrambled Eggs, Bacon Chorizo, and Chihuahua cheese, all rolled into a huge flour tortilla and drenched in the house gravy with bits of breakfast sausage. Believe it or not, they also have vegan and vegetarian options.
