My husband and I recently tried Picantes because it always seems to be packed, but it was a big disappointment. The burritos are big is size, but lack in flavor. The chorizo was so greesy, we couldn't even eat it. I will say though - service is excellent, but if you want GOOD home cooked mexican try Nora's down the street.

Very reasonable prices, huge portions, usually very clean. Good service. If they make a mistake very quick to correct it and willing to make it right on your bill.

Skip Rosas and any other Mexican food places - THIS is the real deal. It doesn't look like much when you arrive, but the service is excellent and the food is even better.

I have gotten the breakfast burrito ($2.75 or less), fajitas, chalupas, enchiladas, and the rice and beans. All of it was great. Even the chorizo is made right there.

Don't forget to get at least one order of the sopapillas! They're to die for!

Can't beat this Breakfast Burrito Deal ~ its HUGE, cheap, and they get it to you fast... what more can you ask for?
