This is going to sound a bit wierd - but this is very much worth going to not only for the food you'll eat (which is quite good ). It is directly attached to a very fun grocery store with lots of Mexican food you can take home, wonderful baked goods, pinatas and other authentic "stuff." Lots of very reasonably priced lunch platters - quesadilla platter, $7.35 (with rice & beans and 2 yummy chicken quesadillas), burrito platter (same price), tomales platter, $7.50, etc.

they have GREAT deserts for .99 and up in the bakery case right night to the cafeteria line,

You go through a line or they have a little fancier restaurant where they wait on you.

Kids will love this place cause there is so much to see and with the cafeteria line you get food instantly. Did I say this is darn good food? Did I say this place is fun?

Very good for quick business lunch. Very good with kids. Very good with friends. Very good!

Strongly recommended.

I dig on the burrito platters, with refried beans and traditional rice. I usually get the carne asada, although they tend to run out of the meat at the end of the day. Definitely notches above Chipotle. Family run with a sit-down option if you want it.

Walkiing into this palce is like walking into a shop in a larger city in Mexico only wiht American products and translations! The food is spectacular with a wide variety of specials that can be prepared for you or a variety of baked goods and other items from the deli or supermarket.

This place is wonderful! Finally, some authentic Mexican food. The prices are very affordable and the food is tasty! You can eat inside at the restaurant or try the cafeteria style cafe. Either way the food is great and the price is right!
