Went there with my family the other day as my wife has been going there for weeks now. It's a small place spread over 2 levels with a little outdoor seating area. Daily menu changes regularly, so overall choice is limited but sufficient and the system works. Food quality was excellent (beans were only lukewarm, but that's the only complaint I have).

My kids loved the various tastes and free coffee and juice comes with the breakfast as well as ice tea for the lunches. Good reasonable pricing and smiley staff.
Try it - you will enjoy it and be back!

Spectacular Breakfast burrito. Also highly recommend getting half iced tea with the limeade. Waiters couldn't be nicer. Great deal as well with Brunch plus a drink for $4

This has quickly become one of my favorite restaurants in town. I'm not alone, obviously, because on most days the place is full at lunch time. I just wish they served dinner! The breakfasts are all great--I can't even recommend any one over the others, but I usually go for the huevos ranchero or the chorizo hash, The lunches were of equal or better quality for the first month, but have been somewhat less reliable since. I suspect that is because they are trying to keep them all to the $5 price point, including drinks with free refills. Sometimes they are still winners, like the tortas or enchilades with mole, other times not so great or a bit small. like the tamales (very tasty, however). In the latter case, you can just top it off with their excellent dessert of the day, which I believe is always $2 and often big enough for two. (The flan might even serve three, as it is so rich that a little goes a long way.) The food is very authentic Mexican and reminds me of some of my favorite local restaurants when I lived there, but will differ from what most Americans are used to because the cooks come from Acapulco, not northern Mexico or Texas. The owners and staff are also extremely friendly.
