The burritos are probably the largest you will ever get for the low price they charge. I have eaten here for over ten years. To be honest, I don't eat much else, because they don't have pictures. And I don't understand spanish. Give this place...More

This place is humming at lunch and dinner. Brisk take-out business, everybody in the neighborhood stops in for good cheap tacos and burritos. Good house made salsas, efficient and cordial bilingual service, adequate seating. Nice garnish station with roasted jalapeños and pickled veggies. Passable horchata,...More

While I like many of their items (although I haven’t sampled all of their expansive menu), I usually order the chile verde burrito special - so good I can’t be enticed to switch. I also get a take-out container of pickled carrots (zanahorias en escabeche)...More
