This nice little place is very informal, you get a tray and get the food at the counter, then bring it to your table yourself. Straightforward. Food is tasty and fresh. Crowd is young, mood is relaxed.

Thank you Les V for your positive reaction to our "nice little place" :). Yes our California-Mexican cuisine is straightforward (#simplemakesperfect), as well as our focus on flavorful farm-fresh ingredients of the highest quality (#farmtocounter). We certainly hope to see you again soon @CHEZWaWa !

Really good mexican food. Since I discovered it few months ago I am returning at least once a month. Lots of space so feel free to come with a buggy/stroller. Try American Anchor beer from San Francisco, goes really good with the burrito.More
