Stopped at Laguna before going to airport and back home form vacation. We found papa's taco stand and we were glad we did. Excellent last meal in California.

We ordered the small burritos (one wet machacha burritos and one regular chicken burrito). Both were massive and outstanding on flavor. Prices are excellent.
