This place serves mainly Mexican. It is a fast food restaurant, but the quality is decent. I had a chicken burrito which was big and filling. My daughter had nachos which would have fed both of us. It’s reasonably priced, free wifi as well.

Was walking from from Portrait Museum to my hotel and ran across this joint on Taco Tuesday. Ordered the tacos and salsa. One taco was steak and one was seasoned hamburger. I would skip the hamburger next time and get to steak.

Ordered two "street tacos". One blacked fish, fair taste that seems to be made bland to appeal to the masses. The other was the California Screamin'. Blackened chicken, veggies, salsa and California Screamin' sauce. It was marked with a "spicy" symbol on the menu. Much...More
