We stopped here for a quick late snack. Ordered the chili cheese fries, sweet potato fries and chicken taco. All were excellent. The chili cheese fries (small) was huge and could easily been shared by 2 people. The chicken taco was very flavorful.

So surprised the food was good. We happened to run across this food stop by accident while driving through Pasadena late one night. The cashier recommended the taco and pastrami burger. Both were equally delicious. We would not hesitate to eat there again..
