    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!

    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

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

    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.

    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.

    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.
