    El Chavo #8 is a good option for a lighter sandwich

    Had to grab a po' boy

    Check in occasionally to try their homemade waters, like watermelon, melon, cantalope, pineapple with basil, lemonade with chia, and hibiscus waters !

    If you love shrimp try Shrimp Po'boy, if you love veggies try the Veggie tofu torta. All their sides are great and tasty but my favorite is the mustard basil potatos!

    Deliciously complex sammiches. The diablab is super spicy so be careful.

    Mojito and cubana. Ahogado is good but spicy

    Phil · November 6, 2014
  • Justin O.

    Love the torta ahogado!

    Justin Ordoveza · October 17, 2014

    More expensive than a regular torta but quality of ingredients justifies the price.

    Lengua is amazing

    The fad at Mexican lunch counters these days is for the torta ahogada, a Guadalajara-style torta drowned in chile sauce, and Cook's version is almost surreally spicy. Read more

    Aguas frescas, any flavor!

    Ranchito !

    I was on a mission to try every torta here until I had the bombero. Now I am on a mission to eat the bombero has many times as possible.

    Number 5 or 17

    Milanesa is one of the best, hands down. Crispy breaded meat and the soft bread go together sooo well.

    Paloma Foster · January 23, 2014
  • Thomas G.

    Pretty awesome veggie options!

    Thomas Guzowski · January 23, 2014

    Fries and cups of agua come in styrofoam!

    Po Boy torta is really good with a large pineapple mint freshly made agua

    "Nutella Empanada"--don't think, just get it!!!

    Anthony Lagasca · November 20, 2013
  • Yun D.

    Good bread is absolutely essential to a good sandwich and this bread is GREAT!!! Sourdough rolls, perfectly suited for absorbing all of the juices from these sandwiches.

    Yun Ding · November 18, 2013
  • Frank V.

    La diabla is legit (and hot) but if you like spicy it's the "bees knees"

    Frank Vasquez · October 11, 2013
  • Christof U.

    You can't go wrong with anything on the menu here. Definitely recommend.

    Call your order in so you don't you don't have to bear the crowded line

    Christian Blue · August 20, 2013

    Strawberry Guayaba Agua Fresca is so good!

    Sharon Lee · August 15, 2013
  • Rodney W.

    Awesome food!!!

    Rodney Wirtz · July 30, 2013
  • Vanessa S.

    The Carne Asada was dry and scarce: my sandwich was mostly lettuce! They must have forgotten the pico de gallo. Try the Mojito (a bit on the sweet side) or Ahogada (spicy!) instead.

    Vanessa Sandoval · June 23, 2013
  • Matthew S.

    La will melt your face off but man is it a good torta.

    Matthew Saucedo · May 24, 2013

    People aren't staring at you, you're probably sitting next to the menu wall.

    It's all about the BBC pull pork!

    John Wan · May 4, 2013

    I asked to make the #6 spicy. It did not disappoint.

    John L. · April 30, 2013
  • iSam .

    Its an Ok place, good quality but the value of taste and price don't match. Not all that great. Average.

    iSam  · February 10, 2013
  • Carolina M.

    Portions are monstrous: two could easily share a sandwich. Don't miss the sweet potato fries, made fresh and dotted with chunky ground salt. YUM.

    Carolina Miranda · December 30, 2012
  • Kaylee K.

    Try carne asada and al bombero. Also their cucumber lime drink is very good :)

    Kaylee K · August 25, 2012
  • Cristian R.

    Cristian Reyes · August 7, 2012

    I like the taco taco salad. Today I feel like chicken, so sub the beef for chicken.
