True south of the border delicacies! Enchiladas, tacos, and giant burritos made in a family owned restaurant, fresh daily. The menu caters to everyone, with options from mild, to 'caliente', as well as vegetarian, and vegan options. Their Horchata, a rice, water, milk, and cinnamon drink is a favorite to many and is definitely worth a try.
