They make great traditional Mexican Deli type foods here. Also the burrito's are Awesome! I strongly encourage you to buy their tub of guacamole and bag of chips for your next party. Great value and quality!

This store has everything Mexican. I've been going there for years I just buy their Guacamole & chips. It's great to bring when you are going to someone else's house and bring them this.
