Worth the wait in line and for parking!!

The surf & turf tacos are reason enough to drive down and wait in line! Such a good combo- yummy and fresh... Can't wait to go back for more!!

Each time we have visit we drive by this place and there's always a line out the door. So on the day we visited the line was short and the line wasn't that long. The interior is pretty cool with the Mexican wrestling theme, masks and all, very cool. However, we didn't visit to see wrestling memorabilia and masks we... More

We stopped in for lunch based on a recommendation from a friend. The line wasn't too bad when we arrived but grew out the door as we left. I ordered the surf and turf burrito combo. I was happy with the option of ordering a smaller size than usual. The ambiance is fun. It seems well worth it to be... More

I heard about this place after watching man vs food and wanted to try it. Excellent food and service. I had the California Surf and Turf Burrito it was really good! Parking was a little tricky and it was busy but we got a table quickly as people rotated out.

There are plenty of great item on their menu, but I usually go for the "Holy Mole" burrito, it's awesome. The mole is not too sweet or spicy, it's delicious. I love the atmosphere at the place, although it's a little bit small and gets really crowded, specially around noon. If you're in a hurry, you can order by phone... More

Upon arriving at lunchtime, the line was out the door and every seat was taken, but it was well worth the wait. The burritos were fantastic (I got the blackened Mahi Mahi) and no one in my party was the least bit disappointed. They had an expansive (and delicious) salsa selection for every palette and quite a few Mexican soda... More

Went with my husband and 2 daughters for a late lunch. Didn't have to wait long, only a few people in line before us. I had the Holy Moly burrito and thought it was great which says a lot because I LOVE mole and am use to my moms/sisters version and having it in many restaurants in the US and... More
