The food here is great....real carnitas, chile verde, giant quesadillas, and all with tortillas made by hand when you order...at prices so low for so much. And if you're in a hurry this is the place for a rush order...hungry late at night on the weekend...they're open until 3am.

First off the burritos are very large! The tortillas, freshly rolled out and grilled. I frequently get the fajita shrimp burrito. The staff freshly grills the shrimp and veggies as I wait.

Different name but same location. Huge burritos. Very good. Pricing is what you expect for what you get. Would go back.

We were looking for a place close to the Best Western in Downtown Modesto that was close enough to walk and found this great Mexican restaurant. My wife had a burrito and I had the enchiladas (chicken). Food was great, freshly made in front of you, even the shells and chips. I also had the rice and beans, both great... More

Wow!!!! Simply Wow! Handmade flour tortillas, ordered a barbacoa beef burrito. Select your own items. No more Chipotle or Free Birds for me. I am definitely coming back.

Went yesterday for a couple of burritos and they were really really good. Tasted fresh and delicious. The bad thing is the service. Staff eating behind the bar and the waitress (or boss i guess) not only did not look at us when paying but neither moved her hands and eyes appart from the mobile phone when we left a... More
