The tacos and burritos are great. Its plenty of food for the price they charge. Their red salsa is very addicting. But its all about their Carne Asada Fries. Those are amazing! They do charge $0.70 for using a credit card.

This tiny mexican food place has the best burritos and tacos. Open 24 hours all year long. I always get the Carne Asada Burrito and Carne Asada Soft Tacos. Perfect for that late night hunger.

The best taco place in the Pasadena area. The Baja Style fish tacos here are outstanding, moist, with a crisp batter, the Tacos Al Pastor are also really good. And the burritos are generous in portion.
