Nice veg options. The tostada was great. Chips and salsa is a great option for takeout. Not so much room for eating and it is a fast-food setup.

This was on my walk near the Omni La Costa. I stopped for a late breakfast/early lunch and was astounded by the quantity of food for such a low price. It was very good.

We discovered Rudy's on TripAdvisor a few years ago. The prices are reasonable and the food is spectacular. The staff is friendly and patient. Some days during the week, they have "happy hour' specials as well.
