Quick lunch on the way out of town. Great prices and great food. Certainly one of many great places with local flare to eat at in San Diego

After it was on the food network the line has often been out the door, and even if there aren't waits at places nearby, I choose to get in line. The burritos really are that good. The decor with Mexican wrestling masks is cheesy, but...More
