Every time I visit, I get the same thing because it has always delighted me: the super burrito with carnitas. They also have carrot/jalepeno pickles and the usual hot sauces. Their horchata is also quite good.

I call this the "dirty mexican place"! It isn't slick by any means, it's run by actual mexicans watching mexican TV, serving authentic food.
