While the outside is not attractive I normally don't judge a book by its cover. The service was great and the food was ok. I had the Huevos Rancheros, and with the portions they serve, there was plenty to fill me up. I think you all would agree that it's hard to mess up a breakfast. While these guys didn't... More

My husband ordered a Meat and cheese burrito (carnitas). It was very dry, no sauce. Some of the meat was dry and hard, and the tortilla... More

The outside of the restaurant isn't all to welcoming, but its worth your time to head on in! This is only of my boyfriends favorite spots and he finally took me there. Authentic and delicious Mexican food done right! A plethora of salsas, but you need to order chips if you want them. Horchata is amazing! A walk and up... More

Evita's Cafe is one of my "must eat" places when I return home for a visit. I am partial to the Pollo Asada platter. REAL refried beans, excellent homemade tortillas, and a fresh salsa bar keep me coming back for more.

The food is good here but the place is in need of updating. But if your not expecting trills then enjoy your meal and the burritos are really big. Good Menudo too if you like it.
