Amazing and simple menu where every dish has little touches of class to make them stand out. The tortilla chips have a little house seasoning that gives extra flavor. The shells on the chicks street tacos are slightly toasted so they’re not brittle and not soggy. I’d eat here again!

The best food in Johnston! For an extra special treat, be sure to order the chips and cheese dip.

Nice little place. I grabbed the Asada Torta and enjoyed it. If you're going to lunch get there early, the place fills up fast.

Best shrimp tacos around! Ingredients are fresh and very well seasoned.

Had dinner there just this week. This is the location of the old Brickhouse Cafe. It's a very small restaurant, so very difficult to social distance. A stream of people were picking up take-out, however. All employees were wearing masks, however. We sat in a booth, separated from the next booth by a plexiglass panel. My wife had the burrito bowl, which looked excellent. I had shrimp tacos with mango chunks - they were very good. I'd order them again. There is a small selection of beers. The waitress was very good. I plan to return.

2/2021 What a find. They have been open in this brick and mortar location a little more than 3 weeks. The food was amazing, we shared homemade chips and queso, beef burrito bowl and shrimp taco with mango salsa.There was still a large carry going on at 1:15 which speaks volumes.We will be returning

Great food! My wife had the tortilla salad with chicken and she said it was very good! I ordered the Huaraches with steak and wow was that amazing. The Arbol salsa is spicy and has great flavor. Also, don’t forget the seasoning on the chips, it’s addicting. Try out this new Johnston establishment, you won’t be disappointed.

I bought lunch for my staff and everyone enjoyed their food. The hot salsa packs a punch, it is great. We will be going back in the future!

We tried the new Flame taqueria in Johnston tonight. It was delicious. My wife got the huaraches, which is a piece(?) of masa with black beans and steak. I got a shrimp burrito that was stuffed with cheese, beans, crema and shrimp. Delicious. Try the hot sauces too- the arbol is great.
