Nice and clean restaurant and a lot of food for the price. Great burritos and salsa. They blend their guacamole which is abhorrent to me but the flavor is good. Staff very friendly as well.

Been here a few times and tried the breakfast burrito and bean/rice/cheese burrito; both were very good. The ingredients were fresh and they both had good flavor. The chips and salsa are also good but they don't have a salsa bar.

My wife (Mexican) stopped by for lunch and were delighted with food. The tacos, the ochata, the pozole and the guac were simply delicious and truly authentic. Bring cash as they were not taking cards at the time!
