The best time to go to Primo's is the weekend because they have great BBQ. The pulled pork, tri tip and tamales are outstanding as are the ribs. They work very hard at primos. They have good sales too. The fruit can be tasty but be careful to make sure they are not too ripe.

Bean, rice and cheese burrito - inedible. Greasy, chili soaked rice (greasy!), tossed it after two bites. My lunch companion reported his food was also greasy and overall not good. Outside tables facing a dirty parking lot were bird poop splattered, awning shredded, generally an unpleasant area to eat lunch.

when you're hankering for those carne asada fries this is the place. Its about 6 pounds of food for $5. cant beat that.

This is a small neighborhood market that offers plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables out front along with a wide variety of foods you would expect from a small market. It's clean and the employees are friendly. There is a restaurant on the side of the building that serves up great Mexican food fast food style.

Love the al pastor tacos. Authentic tacos with the corn tortillas, cilantro, onion, lime - amazing place!

Check expiration dates on every product. I got home and had some stuff expired. Staff was friendly and exchanged it but it was a hassle having to go back after arriving home. It's all at a decent price, most is discounted stuff, I guess that's how they make up their products.
