“Great late bite”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2012

El farolito has been a back bone in Mexican food for as long as I can remember at least 15 years. They have always been cheaper then the other Mexican food spots, but still managed to have bigger burritos than anywhere else plus there open late you can go to the bars have last call and still make it there to get a late night burritos .

“FAST SERVICE AND GOOD FLAVOR”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2012

The service is very fast, despite that is usually crowded especially around lunch or dinner times. Prices are affordable and there is a choice or sitting in or to go. I have been eating at this place for the last 15 years and I forgot to write a review on it. My favorite dish is "Carne asada," which brings the meat, rice, and beans, plus tortillas. It is also recommended to try the super burrito with different choices of meat. They also have Mexican drinks such as "Jarritos," aguas frescas, orchata and jamaica.
