“Good, reasonable food.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 11, 2013

Found this place by accident because I was staying at a nearby hotel. Fantastic food, decent prices, family-run with everyone helping out. Went back a second night because I had such good food the first night. Only thing is they weren't heating the place and I visited on a cool December evening. It was worth almost freezing to death to have the food.

“Ok..”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2013 via mobile

Nice staff, but I wouldn't recommend their breakfast burrito, it wasn't very good. The other things they sell might be better though:)

“Incredibly tasty!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2013

This place is not fancy at all and does not have an alcohol license. But, wow, the food is truly outstanding. Try a burrito made enchilada style! Also, the enchiladas (cheese) were fabulous.

“Good, quick mexican food but easy to miss”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 26, 2012

This little place has a very small storefront on a side street just off of Pacific Beach, easy to miss but worth the stop especially if you're looking for quick mexican food (but not fast food). The food wasn't really cheap, especially if you wanted sides or chips, but it was pretty reasonable and the quality was good.

“Fresh and tasty”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 20, 2012

It would be easy to walk past the ordinary looking store front, but this place is worth stopping for! The pork tacos were delicious and burritos were great, and just excellent value. The service was friendly - would happily return!
