    Everything is great, but this is the restaurant that introduced me to carnitas burritos 20-something years ago. Awesome bakery in the grocery store, too.

    Anyone from Central or South America will love it here. Cubans can find many favorites from their homeland in the tightly packed aisles, the produce section, meat department, and the freezer case.

    Menudo is my fave - awesome grown man. Restaurant, cafeteria style kitchen and groceries. Very authentic taste and feel of Mexico. Try the take home salsa and deli bar!

    Favorites include the beef in colorado sauce, a smoky, silky red mole; a pork guisado based on tart bright green tomatillos; or a pollo a la diabla--satanically hot! Salsas are fresh daily, too. Read more

    On Fridays, and most taquerias on weekends. While you're there, grab some pozole, also a traditional weekend soup, made with hominy. Read more

    I had trouble finding the dining area. (Its all the way back to the right of the ala carte line). The original burrito was a little bland for my taste but the enchiladas were excellent.

    One word: guisados. Stewed meats, beans, rice, tortillas...then roll your own. The pork with salsa verde is especially good.

    Go to El Burrito Mercado for endless burrito-building variations, including a wide selection of meats. Try the pork in chipotle sauce (spicy) and the poblano-style chicken (tasty).
