the food is delicious, the portions are VERY generous, and the ambience is, well, lacking. But it's a colorful and friendly place to grab a bite, especially if it's after midnight --- Cosmic is one of the only places that's open 24 hrs.

Note that the entrance is through a door and up the stairs (same entrance as 9th St Dance).

So, apparently this is the place everyone goes to after getting hammered in Franklin St.
"Mexican food", let me just say: Mexicans don't put rice as filling in their burritos. However, I was drunk and hungry, and willing to pay for that overpriced rice-filled burrito. Won't go again.

But!!! I do remember I liked the atmosphere. We sat outside on the roof, it was late, and we danced to salsa music. It was a late night run so sorry for the lack of details but eat on the roof!

The Cosmic Experience is one all visitors should experience. The graffiti on the walls as you walk upstairs. The disgusting interior and even more disgusting bathroom. The tiny hole in the garbage can you have to fit your trash through when you bus your table. But the food. Oh, that food. It is freaking awesome. The best steak burrito you've ever had. Oh, and its humongous and costs about $6.

We got take-out for six. It was quickly prepared, all correct, hot, and the tastiest. Burritos, rice, tacos, were the best and I definitely will be back!
