    Their tortillas taste store bought and they messed out our order. They have free endless tortilla chips and salsa. Waaay to much cilantro in everything. Iced tea was AMAZING though.

    Try the California burrito dinner or the Tacos de carne asada--and on Wednesdays you get a juicy margarita for $1.99!

    Quesadilla Verde: Super Yum. Vegetarian Plate A is a good standby. Very good-natured staff who bring the party. I love this place.

    Be sure to come here on your birthday for the chance to wear a large sombrero and free tequila shots.

    AMAZING FOOD! Their cheese for chips is a must-have when you go. Totally worth the extra money.

    The California burrito has rice in it... That's not a Cali burrito. French fries my friends!

    The mango & peach margaritas are delicious! Get a pitcher & share between 2-3 people-- it's an absolutely perfect way to enjoy a meal!

    Pollo fundido is my go-to meal. Nothing's great, but nothing's bad.
