Burritos are already extraordinarily filling; the ones here are huge, so you'd be hard-pressed to finish one, especially since it comes with nachos and some very spicy, excellent salsas. The Bajacal seems to be the less heavy, with prawns and French fries replacing rice. Usually a long line at lunchtime - not many skinny customers, though.

Good soft tacos and nacho dishes. Their tomato-onion salsa is killer with their fresh chips (no hot spice). Decade or so ago their chips were awful now they are great. Only big problem is that every menu change they list a pork taco and THEY NEVER HAVE IT! EVER! Cheese quesadilla is also killer deal damn get now fool.
