    Fantastic sandwiches. Baja chicken was awesome. Ahogada is a pork sandwich with pickled onions in a red soup. Very good.

    Celebrity chef Rick Bayless really knows his way around authentic Mexican ingredients. The tortas are incredible – especially the goat-based Barbacoa one, if they're offering it. WinstonWanders.com

    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

    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.
