Good Super Burrito. Meat of choice (numerous choices, I had "lengua" - i.e., beef tongue - tasty & tender) plus beans, rice and seasonings in a large flour tortilla. Fast service.

The food here is average and an at an ok price. The best thing here is the orange sauce! I buy a bottle every few months to keep at home. If you do eat here I recommend the quesadillas with chorizo.

A taqueria in an old Victorian house (hence the name) next to the university, so many students come here. Simple but so good! That's where I go for my Mexican torta fix.
