    Like the baja chicken and the cubano. Skip the loaded guac and get the naked guac

    Xoco salad is amazing, any additional protein is great too.

    Tortas filled with chorizo and cheese or braised short rib with pickled jalapeños warmed in a wood-burning oven. Oh, you should probably save room for churros and chocolate. We love you, Rick Bayless. Read more

    The Cubano is delicious! The meat is juicy and tender and it comes with a tasty sauce.

    Not impressed. The people are in a hurry and they don't give a shit about you. They just want to get you in and out. The food was mediocre, and the chips and salsa were chipotle quality.

    EVERYTHING is amazing. Love the Pepito & the Abogahda Torta. Do yourself a favor and get the glazed churro. Pistachio & Hazelnut are phenomenal

    The hazelnut churros (and the churros in general) are delicious. Same for the hot chocolate. Honestly everything I've ever had here has been good, so just order whatever strikes your fancy.
