Excellent Burritos or other Mexican style foods... you won't walk away hungry and will probably have enough left over for 2 meals!!!

We visit this restaurant often, carry out and dine in. Every time is consistently good, fresh and tasty. Excellent value, authentic Mexican dishes and the best burrito in the area. Service is fast and friendly. You won't be disappointed

Super good fast food Mexican. Friendly service and great prices! Tacos are all good, even the fish tacos. Love the rice and horchata. Call ahead and pick up or be prepared to eat in the hole in the wall (which us fun too).
