    pretty mediocre especially if you've been exposed to a west coast burrito. a pet peeve is unmelted cheese sprinkled in a burrito. but cheap, fast and kid friendly. squash and corn is a solid option.

    Being a vegetarian the rice and bean burrito is obviously a staple but their squash and corn burrito is out of this world! Their fresh, homemade guacamole really makes their burritos.

    The nachos weren't impressive. Stick with the burritos or the veggie chili.

    Their salsa is amazing. Chicken can be a little dry, but if you get extra salsa i guarantee you won't care.

    The guacamole is absolutely superb. The closest thing to fast food in JP, this place offers fresh, low-fat Mexican classics that are very high in flavor. Read more

    Have your Skinny Moo made with whole milk and peanut butter. It tastes like melted Reece's Cups! Thank me later.

    If you get here before 2pm on Saturday or Sunday, try a breakfast burrito. They're fantastic.
