    Huge and delicious burritos. Don't bother with a combination plate, the burrito alone is more than enough.

    For a good Mexican food craving, this is the place even thought there is an extra charge for chips and salsa.

    For me...what sets this taqueria apart from so many others is the meat. The owner is a master of marinate and I've literally never seen anyone else run the grill.
