I just stopped by for a late breakfast after helping a friend out. Parking was close by, and the interior was clean....However the heat in the dining area was pretty much unbearable. There was one couple eating when I walked in. After I placed my order I heard one of them complaining about the heat and they decided to take... More

Never normally taken by non-full service restaurants but the food here was good. Good selection, reasonably priced and enough for a takeaway box for back at the hotel.

I've been going to this place for 18 years now through all the different owners. Food is just like any other bertos but they are very friendly and their food is always fresh. Can't complain. Try the Adobada tacos!!!

I typically do not go out of my way to eat at, or review, fast food restaurants. We happened into this location, whereas we have been at a few of the others. Ok, the place is tired and in severe need of a remodel. The food is better than average and the prices are fair.

Yes, Los Primos has Jamaica Ole, Pina Colada Bang, Orange Bang, Tamarindo Ole, and Horchata Ole. Orange Bang is a lot like Orange Julius, and Hochata Ole is like a drinkable version of rice pudding. The food is cheap and filling. The salsa bar is just okay. But those drinks................................worth the trip.

This is a great little taco shop with excellent enchilada sauce, beans and combos. Their breakfast burritos are a great deal for a delicious start to your day.

Big portions, not particularly flavorful. My friend and I got burritos with beans and rice on the side. Both rice and beans were nicely textured, but not flavorful. The burritos were just ok. We got flan and churros for dessert - also just ok. If you are looking for cheap Mexican food that isn't spicy, this is probably for you,... More

It's the greatest....fast and convenient, fresh and healthy. This is where you want to go for a fast bite. Forget Rubio's....not worth the money.
