Good quality Mexican food on the run or dine in @ affordable prices. The pinto beans (frijoles de olla) are made fresh daily & always hot & ready to eat or add some green tomatillo sauce for the extra kick. The mulillas are sooooo good with melted cheese & carne asada as well as the tacos & wet burritos.

If you like your tacos and burritos with a choice of all the Mexican meats ... this is the place. Everything is made fresh and then you get to add the beans, onions, pickled carrots, etc. The service is 'do it yourself' once you pick up your tray. They are so busy nothing is ever sitting for very long.

If I want a delicious satisfying carnitas burrito I head to Downey's Tacos El Gavilán. They're made to order. Get mine filled with sweet tender pork, rice, beans and avocado. Topped off with a refreshing agua fresca de piña. Service is quick place is bright and clean. Open very late too for your late night cravings.

If you're on the town and out late at night and want something to get you sober or to have a quick bite.. go here. Tacos are delicious and they have a variety of condiments at no charge. You wont be sorry. Prices are really good as well.
