Great food, nice people, not the cheapest, but still a great value. A frequent stop of mine, conveniently located in the middle b/t San Diego and OC.

This restaurant has been around forever and their food is decent. We ordered the chicken tostadas which are good and filling. Service for carryout is quick and efficient.

The food here is ridiculously good and fairly inexpensive. It's counter service with tables. It's fairly crowded, there's a bit of a wait for your food but it's so worth it.
