Great lunch buffet with many of El Burrito Mercado's incomparable glissades, rice, beans, enchiladas, and taco makings. The restaurant was packed! Friendly service.

This Mexican market has the best food in the twin cities. In addition, they sell delicious breads and many groceries that are needed to cook authentic Mexican dishes
