    Get the chimichanga. Giant-sized. It is two meals in one.

    Two regular burritos is cheaper than a "giant", yet slightly more food.

    Maizena salad with beans and salsa is the only time as a vegetarian I recommend salad. Also love the veggie burrito with spinach and shrooms.

    Quite overrated from the tips. My chimichanga was really greasy and very bland. Probably won't return sober.

    Best hole in the wall joint! Get the salads with salsa on top. Veggie burritos are great; get wheat for 10 cents extra.

    Three types of burritos: Old School = beans no rice. Constance = rice no beans. Regular = both. Deluxe = add sour cream and guac. Three sizes: mini, reg, giant. Takes training to finish the giant!

    Very good, but not the best Mexican in Durham. One of the few places to go after the bars close at 2am. Stays open 'til 4am to keep the party going.
