16 minutes for a chimichanga in a fast food place,excessive. Chimichanga simply no flavor soggy, flat and nothing but a mess. If you don't know how to prepare a simple chimichanga don't do it. What for a waste of money.

Coming from Los Angeles, my hubby and I were pretty keen to try this street food in Athens. We ordered the chicken fajitas (not a real Mexican dish, but generally a crowd pleaser), crunch chicken tacos (also not really Mexican) and guacamole. Both the fajitas and tacos were smothered in sour cream (delicious but not Mexican). The fajitas also had some nicely green peppers and onions and the flour tortilla was soft and flavorful. The crunchy taco shell was texturally strange. I expected a freshly fried corn tortilla, but what we got was a bit more like boxed El Paso brand taco shells only texturally more like it was made with chick pea flour. Importantly, neither had any seasoning much less Mexican seasoning. No coriander, no cumin, no paprika, no garlic, no cilantro. Perhaps these spices are difficult to find in Greece? And the guacamole - yikes, it tasted like rotten guacamole and went into the trash. The texture of the chips was much like the taco shells - not our favorite. Ultimately, I still liked the fajitas and tacos, I just wouldn’t call it Mexican.

Cool street food corner serving Mexican food. They also have great vegan options or dishes that can be made vegan & the staff is super friendly & well educated. We tried the Vegetable Burrito, the Chili con Carne Burrito & the vegan low-calorie Wrap, which were all very delicious. A great spot for a quick & relaxed meal in the heart of Athens.

The quesadilla is more like a burrito but everything is delicious. Great place to grab a snack or even catch a meal.
