As one reviewer put it, "If you are looking for La Mesa, this is not it". This is NOT a mexican restaurant chain, but the real deal. My wife and I both had tortas while we were there and they were great. Also, the salsa was very good and unique. The only thing kind of strange was they did serve fries with the torta. This is a very small intimate restaurant and has that kind of "hole in the wall" feeling. If you enjoy real Mexican food, you will enjoy it. If you enjoy Americanized Mexican food, there is still Chipotle for you.
