Came here with work fks since last time we had great service and food, and we were once again not disappointed! Carne Asada burrito was the best I've ever had! This place is about as authentic as it gets!

Locally owned, small and un-fancy, which suited us very well. Delicious potato, egg and green chili burrito; friendly and efficient service.
