I had a great chili relleno burrito, wet style. Friends had tacos and loved them. Mostly outdoor seating, so great on a nice day. Kookie sculptures. Lots of photo ops.

Reasonably priced and quick Mexican food in an unusual setting. The owner & artist, has decorated his no-frills Mexican cantina inside and outside in recycled and found objects. Tasty food worth seeking out if you are in Riverside.

This place is worth visiting for the sculptures and weird yard art alone! You can go in the parking lot gate to the right of the restaurant and see all the yard art. Do wander around the back to see everything out there, there are...More
