    Tastes just like moms cooking. Come before rush, good food at good prices tend to be difficult to find seating.

    Beans aren't vegetarian! Which is fine, but I wish it said it on their menu. We confirmed with the staff - they use meat-based seasonings.

    Prepare to stand in line to order. Stood over 20 mins! Then, over 20 mins to get food to table. Returning? Unsure. Prefer to SIT & order. Generous portion. Average tasting meal/Mole Enchilada combo .

    Steak mojado burrito was amazing. Avoid agaves burrito, just tastes like thousand island sauce over fish...

    The Baja tacos are great. This place gets very crowded so try and go there during off peak hours. The food is definitely worth the wait.

    The Molcajete is no joke! Comes to the table bubbling like lava in a lava rock bowl. Get the Sea & Earth version for a taste of everything (fish, shrimp, chicken, chorizo, steak).

    Great Mexican food. The best Nachos I have eaten anywhere. There was a line out the door. No wonder. Prices are fair (not cheap) and food quality is excellent. I'll be back when we return to SB.
