Casual Mexican restaurant. Wait in line to order and pick up when ready. Very quick. Try the California burrito. Carne asada, cheese, and french fries. Very unique.

Stumbled upon this place while en route to another Mexican restaurant near by. The parking lot across the street for El Indio customers was a selling point but the food did not disappoint. Very authentic and delicious and very organized system when ordering.

Went for dinner on Sunday night. Had tacos and enchiladas. The food was hot and came out quickly. Enchiladas were excellent and the carnitas tacos were very good. Drink selection was great and the horchata was fantastic! Will certainly be back!
