The long waiting line in front of the restaurant already set some expectation. And the Super-Rica did not fail to deliver. Good Mexican food for an unbeatable price! Don't miss it while driving by, though. Pay close attention to the pictures! ;-)

Although still very popular and food made with fresh ingredients it seemed lacking some of its former spark. It has been about 5 years since last there and I remember having a great meal. This time it only seemed average.
