As you would expect from a churreria, it is DELICIOUS! You can have your churros dipped in cinnamon and/or sugar and then you can choose a few different sauces for dipping. The decor is fun and bright.

They are always fresh, warm and crispy. They have two types of sugar toppings - White sugar and White sugar with cinnamon. Definitely try out their chocolate dip with Churros (you will find dips at the end of their menu). They also have many chocolate...More
