There are a lot of places that sell this type of torta, But this is one of the best, the size and the portion of the torta is good, and the price is fair.

I love this place they only sell tortas and French fries. Not only are the tortas delicious but the fries are awesome. I recommend this to people who want great food without having a complicated menu.
