Awesome food! Tacos, salsa, chicken and more. All great and wonderful. (Other patrons of the restaurant were not so pleasant, but that's not the restaurants fault) Great food at any time of the day!

roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the
famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles
