Clean good food. Relaxed environment. Tacos are great Asada and Asada burrito! The price is good too 6.25 for a big burrito. Tacos are 3.75 but big for the cost.

Located right off Rosecrans this little gem is fantastic for lunch or breakfast. Many types of burritos (breakfast as well) and tacos. You really can not go wrong here. Service is quick and always friendly!

Carne Asada Burrito with everything is my absolute favorite. The steak is flavored to perfection! I have eaten here over a hundred times and have never been dissatisfied. Huge burrito and a small drink for less than ten bucks.

Breakfast burrito was amazing. The tortilla was toasted to perfection and the cheese in it was amazing. I got guac on the side for my bacon potato egg and cheese burrito and I have no regrets

My favorite place for Mexican fast food. I am often asked to by people on the east coast who have to Adalbertos to ship them some burritos from there, yes it is that good!

A must stop for me every time I travel to San Diego. Not sure how something so simple can be so good but it is quite amazing. The staff at this place is awesome as well. It is always the same guy taking orders and he looks to be so happy that everyone is eating here.

We read an obscure recommendation on the wall of the apartment we are staying in and then randomly spied this spot on the way home from downtown San Diego. Conveniently located right off Rosecrans...the carne asada was so delicious and authentic!!!! We are going back!
