Viva Tacos La Estrella Restaurant Review

: One of the best taco joints in the area, this unassuming place looks the part: obscured in a mini-mall with other tenants that include a massage parlor and donut shop; decorated with linoleum and Formica. But the Baja-style fish tacos are outstanding---moist, flaky tilapia encased in a crispy batter, stuffed into a double-wrap tortilla with white sauce, cabbage and a healthy dose of hot sauce. Try the tacos al pastor (sautéed pork) or the hefty burritos.
