Serving portion was large, food tasty. Taco chips are provided with two choices of salsa. Service was pretty slow, however.

Huaraches Azteca. Awesome. Great tacos, tamales and burritos. Walk-up order, sit down, they bring you food. Sit-down service is weak...just get your own water and don't expect any service. Order everything you need the first time, or they'll get pretty confused. But there's not much...More

The veggie breakfast burrito was very good. We really liked the salsa. Took home some break and brownies from the bakery. Both were good. Would visit here again.
