We ended up here on a recomendationvideo from the travel vloggers: 'The Vaga Brothers'. They weren't wrong, this place is great. We had some really tasty food here, so much value for little money and friendly staff.

Ordered the Carne Asada Burrito and a Chile Relleno. Probably the best I have had in San Diego, but there is more area to cover. A must try if you are in the Hillcrest area!
