My family has been coming here for generations. The food is tasty and authentic, while the service is fast and efficient. The hollenback is a great burrito, but the okie is a lot milder for those who don't want something so spicy.

I have only ever had the burritos which are huge. Very fresh and tasty.Definitely could share a burrito . Not a ton of parking for this popular spot. Probably wouldn't go there at night as the neighborhood is sketchy.
