We ordered burrito suizo, burrito mojado and a cheese quesadilla. The meals lacked much flavor. Not much better than hospital food. A boring meal overall. On the plus side is dirt cheap, like $5 per plate on average.

Most people associate all Hispanic with Mexican which is not correct. Tacanijo utilizes local products to closely mimic Mexican. Good horchata, picante chilies, tasty refritos will remind you of your favorite place back home.
