From the name, I thought this was a taco shop (which has to be the white building in the back of the first picture). The menu sounds interesting, and I like that dining area, too.


You had me at the last two photo.

Aww. His pet's name is Carnitas? Food looks good and fancy.
Was expecting another hole in the wall from the name.


pork belly...swoon!


Wow that's one pork belly, I hope it comes with some rice!


Hi Sandy - I liked the vibe. I think it would be a nice place when things warm up a little.

LOL Billy - You love gravy too eh?

Hi TFD - How you likin' Taiwan? I think there's some Youtibe video of Carnitas doing his thing....whatever that would be.

Hi Kat - Yep, pork belly....

Hi Dennis - You should check them rice though.


Mmmmm, gravy.....


Hi Carol - It was actually more like a semi-cheese sauce, which made it kinda gluey....


I don't remember the last time i had pork belly. The pic looks amazing thou.
Is there parking at this location? Hope you and the missus have a wonderful holiday!


Happy Holidays Faye! There's street parking and the place gets filled up pretty quickly. The food is a bit over the top.....but folks sure seem to be enjoying it.

Pork rules! Nobody does it better. My wife and I dined at the Carnitas Shack and were overwhelmed. Everything we tried was so delicious. We're looking forward to going back and trying other items on the menu. I'm looking forward to beer which I understand is coming soon.


Hi John and Roxie - Thanks for letting me know how much you enjoy Carnitas Snack Shack....though I think you need to get out and experience a full range of pork!
