    The veggie burrito is filled with beans, cheese, rice and guacamole, topped with cheese & ranchera sauce. So good! Husband gets the chile relleno burrito, also good.

    Manuel’s Special Burrito is unrivaled in jaw twisting girth. Don’t be put off by the $23 price tag; you’ll need the greater majority of a frat house to take one down in a single sitting. Read more
