Stopped for a bite in Salinas and was very pleased. The burritos was excellent. Rice, bean and meat. Got to make many choices for salsa and other add ins. The soft tortillas were very good. Counter help was friendly and efficient.

However we found a lovely park with tables to eat our lunch in. Thankfully, it was a lovely day. We'd have had to eat in the car if it were cold or rainy. I can see why it's rated the number one Mexican restaurant in...More
