I love their burritos and quesadillas. So many choices of types of beans, tortillas, rice, guacamole or fresh avocado, and other various ingredients. Everything always tastes so fresh. The salsa bar is killer--lots of different types of salsa, plus fresh lemons, limes and cilantro. Now you can get the ingredients without a tortilla. I haven't tried that because I love... More

This is not your "authentic" Mexican joint. This is a healthy choice. No trans fat, no lard, lots of veggies, and a salsa bar. Great value and happy beach vibes. Order at the counter, and sit at a window seat to enjoy the passing parade of folks as you munch your lunch... or dinner!

I found this place using TripAdvisor as I was visiting Santa Cruz and wanted Mexican. I have to disagree with all the reviews that favorably rate this place. First, it is not really a restaurant. It is a snack bar. You order at the counter and pick up your food at the counter when your order is ready. Silverware is... More

Baja tacos were fantastic and the cajun burrito on spinach wrap was out of this world. The salsa bar was fresh and had a nice assortment of flavors. The serving sizes are ample and the prices are very fair. If I lived in SC this would be my go to place for lunch.

Great little place off the beaten path of downtown Santa Cruz. Food was amazingly fresh and tasty. It's not a flashy place, but the food was so good and we even ordered some of the tasty salsa to go. Walk a few blocks and check out this place!!

We have been here twice in a 3-days visit and we have had here the best Mixican food ever! Especially the crispy taco and nachos grande are so good!

Wow, this was great food and versatile for our various diets--one carnivore and two vegetarians. The food was fresh, the vegetables in the burritoes were cooked just right, the salsa was great and the prices were so reasonable! Hard tacos were crunchy and delicious too. If we lived in Santa Cruz, this would definitely be a restaurant that we would... More

We were looking for a place to eat something a little lighter and cheaper since we'd had a nice big lunch. This place fit the bill! It is like Chipotle, but with many other options. You might want to check out the menu online before you go so you're not standing and reading the extensive menu for a long time.... More

Full meal nicely wrapped in your choice of tortillas or in a bowl. Try the Thai Chicken Burrito $ 5.25 Charbroiled chicken breast sautéed in fresh curry peanut sauce with cucumbers. YUMMY! Nice salsa bar with cilantro and limes.
