Love the burritos and walkability of the surrounding Westcott neighborhood. Try the strawberry avocado salad (CA drought permitting?) and nearly all others on menu. Spicy means SPICY.

Daughter went to SU and she and my wife love coming here, staff is great and food is very good. Somewhat of a wait on weekends.

Consistently excellent. They now have an expanded seating area as well as a few tables outside. Nice beer selection. Love the burritos and calamari!

Fun ambience, eclectic artwork, dedicated waitstaff; Catfish tacos: flavorful, interesting slaw to compliment, not sure about flour tortilla; yummy yellow rice and well seasoned black beans as a side. Get the guacamole!

We heard great things about the food but not the service. Decided to try it for our anniversary dinner and were not disappointed! We went rather early on a Friday night and only waited about 5 minutes for a table. Our server was super friendly...More
