When people talk about Chipotle in this town, I want to smack them for not going to Soup and Taco. Everything is good. I basically lived in this cozy little taco shop during college.

This restaurant may not look like much but it is a great place to go. The people are friendly and food does come out quick. I would say this place is the best mexican restaurant located in downtown.
