Even my picky eater toddlers were impressed with the Mexican fare at this tiny hole-in-the-wall on the main drag. There’s not much seating—we sat at the single outside table, chatting with passersby—but the food is fast and tasty. The staff was really friendly, and it’s...More

A bit quirky but I really do like their Burritos. They have a variety of Burritos and usually have a few specials as well. I am never disappointed when I dine here.

He threw a blue corn taco on the grill for me and stuffed it with grilled fish and veggies. It was to die for. Sometimes there's a line but who cares! You are very well fed with grade A food and fast!
