I have driven by this joint for years snickering at their sign "Best burrito's in San Diego" I finally stopped and was rewarded with really excellent Mexican food. Thanks for leaving San Diego and heading north!

I'm no food expert but I know great Mexican food. This is north idaho were great Mexican food lacks. This is the place. The portions are huge and the price is right. This isn't a fast food Mexican chain this is 100 times better then that. I eat here once or twice a week. I suggest the chicken fajita burrito.

Great Eats! Feels like you walked into little Mexico. The food is authentic, the drinks are great and the service is good. Love that they are open 24 hours.

I can't tell you how disappointing this place is.....the food was barely warm, staff seemed like they didn't care whether you were there or not.....you'll be better off at Taco Bell or Del Taco...better yet, do yourself a favor and drive to Toro Viejo in Post Falls...the prices are about the same and the food and service are great!

I saw the Taco Tuesday $1 add on their readerboard. It was 8:30 in the morning and I ordered 3. They will load it with meat, lettuce, cheese, tomatoes and with the green taco sauce, it finished them off. I've got to eat here more often! Good food great price! Thanks Atilano's!

This was my first time but don't think it will be my last. The burrito was stuffed with meat and salsa for $4.70. Nice salsa bar with hot carrots and peppers and onions. That being said if you looking for fancy this is not the place for you. Could use a good cleaning and staff did not speak good English,... More

If there were any redeeming quality of this joint it would be the hot carrots. But every dish we've tried was not "San Diego's Best." If you've eaten Mexican food in the Southwest, or even Tex-mex, you will not appreciate much here. I try to always limit my reviews to good places- but you needed to be warned about this... More

Their salsa is the best I've tasted. And the chilies rellano are so authentic, I can't wait to go back. If you like good Mexican food, you must give them a try.

I go here on occasion for a good carne asada burrito. Very consistent and tasty. From San Diego originally so I agree with some other reviews that there's better still, but this is still very good. Complaints about salty, greasy, or whatever...comes with the territory and should be expected in my opinion. Staff not the friendliest but I've never had... More
