“Absolutely delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2012

The Cosmic Experience is one all visitors should experience. The graffiti on the walls as you walk upstairs. The disgusting interior and even more disgusting bathroom. The tiny hole in the garbage can you have to fit your trash through when you bus your table. But the food. Oh, that food. It is freaking awesome. The best steak burrito you've ever had. Oh, and its humongous and costs about $6.

“This food rocks!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

We got take-out for six. It was quickly prepared, all correct, hot, and the tastiest. Burritos, rice, tacos, were the best and I definitely will be back!

“The biggest burrito in town”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2012

Don't eat for several days before ordering the El Grande Burrito or you haven't a pray of finishing it. Even then it will take all you got.

“Everything you love about homemade is right here!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2012

I've been going to this awesome gem for over 7 years now. The food and the service has stayed consistent over the years. There is usually a crowed on Friday and Saturday nights but its well worth the wait. There's something on the menu for everyone, even a picky eater like myself.

“Best Burritos in Town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2012

Cosmic serves huge, yummy burritos stuffed to bursting with fresh, well-prepared ingredients. Only negative is the steep stairs up to its location on the 2nd story.
