We visited for lunch with a few friends that loved this place many years ago. We were glad we did. You stand in line and order off a menu on the wall. My husband and I ordered the Happy Burrito which included meat, meat cheese, lettuce and the usual fixings. My husband had an Acapulco Burrito which included shell fish. Both were absolutely excellent. There are tables inside the restaurant were you can enjoy your food. Our friends stated that the restaurant hadn't changed and was as good as it was many years ago when they worked in the City. I would definitely visit again.

Its been there for a long time yet people don't know about it. Nothing fancy but tasty. wet burrito and a real coke for less than $10. It's a regular spot.

In my office, we, (35+ people), LOVE breakfast burros from El Faro. There is nothing better than a piping hot baby burro wrapped in tin foil that drips sauce down your arm and all over your desk to cure anything that ails you. You cannot look pretty eating it, you will think that it is so big you will never finish it, but even hours after you have licked the foil clean, you will still taste the incredible flavor and crave more.
