A great little place. Seems like it's family owned, and it was so cool to see a woman hand-rolling tortillas and placing them right on the grill. Not sure if it gets fresher than that! I got chicken tacos, and they were very good. A...More

While there are plenty of good Mexican spots in town, La super rica is my favorite and really a classic place. The food is so simple, but so high quality. My favorite is the super rica especial.
