Wife and I always make it a point to stop in when we are in the bay area. Great burritos full of flavor. There are so many menu options from tacos's,salads and dinner plates. Service is always quick and portions are genorous.

At normal dining times the line can be very long. The menu is huge with too many choices to contemplate. The Garlic prawns come with the shells on them so be prepared to leave with stinky fingers. Seating is on little stools that are just OK for my larger frame. onto beans were better than the back beans. The tamale was good too

I enjoy pretty much everything on their menu and what is key is that the food is fresh and prepared right in front of you.

I like the quesadillas, burritos and their tacos.

They also have great aguas frescas and salas.

Enjoy, you will not be disappointed!

Average tacos and decor. My vegetarian wife did not have lot of options and it ended up being a veggie burrito which was not great.

The various choices of meat - and the taste and quality - is what makes this place great and I like that they are displayed through the glass at the ordering station. Personally, I prefer chicken to be simmered rather than grilled (they have both here) with the simmered available in several sauces including a tasty Mole sauce. I would consider their Carnitas pork a specialty, served moist and tender and relatively lean instead of greasy/fatty like some other places. They have 2 kinds of rice, 4 kinds of beans and 4 kinds of tortillas (if i recall correctly). The self-service garnish bar has an array of well-made salsas and toppings. Seafood is also available and there's a smoothie/milkshake/juice bar. Prices are very reasonable.
