We stop here every time we're in Borrego Springs and are never disappointed. The California and Nak burritos are delicious and they make killer hot sauce and spicy carrots. Definitely worth stopping by if you're in the area

This is mainly a take-out place although there is ample seating. I love most of their food, especially the fish-burrito, which may be the best in the entire world. The breakfast burritos are also excellent.

If you're looking for a quick burrito or fish taco to hold you over between desert hikes or drives--or even a full meal--this is definitely the place to go. Excellent food and fast friendly service. A favorite "fast food" joint for locals and visitors alike.

This is a Mexican deli style restaurant. The food is more authentic Mexican than the other restaurants in town but the space is spartan. I was given a huge portion of pork that i could not even finish.

Good Mexican food to take out or eat in a very casual setting, at very reasonable prices. Located right on the main street in Borrego Springs, this place has been popular with locals and tourists for a long time.

After hiking Palm Canyon in 93 degree heat, we were very excited to have a delicious lunch. My friend had already been there once and said it was great. I was impressed with their salsa bar, the freshness and the variety. The pickled carrots were amost a meal in themselves, very tasty and refreshing. I asked for an iced tea... More

We had lunch here while on an overnight stay. The green chili plate was great. The cheese enchiladas were good - but not hot enough. They do have a very good senior and children's menu. Food was served quickly and portions were good. Prices were good! Lots of salsas to try!

This is THE place in town for good, inexpensive Mexican food. The counter service is quick and the food is tasty.
