Awesome food and great service! The girl Noemi who works in the front room is super knowledgeable and always remembers her regulars. Vegan and vegetarian options as well.

The prices are very good, reasonable. The food is well proportioned.But what disappointed me is that they have a problem with salt. The torta de pollo asado was very salty, and I said to myself, I'll put some guacamole sauce on it and the sauce was worse salty.Besides, the food iwas a bit cold.First experience not so good, but let's see the second, because I plan to return.

Stopped by valeries again today and ordered a delicious machaca burrito with a melon agua. The best part is they add minimal ice maximizing your beverage value!! Thank you guys I will be back!!

Came in after reading Yelp reviews. Driving through on the way to San Diego. Tacos were delicious. Highly recommend the mahi tacos.

Just got done eating over at this place with my co workers and man... this place is good. I got the basic (what I thought) 3 carne asada tacos but I was wrong. Stacked with onions, cilantro, beans and queso fresco. Dynamite! My buddy got the SD burrito which is a surf and turf California. We will be back. All the way from Orange County. Salud!

Wow. I absolutely love this place and it has become one of my go to places. Must try the green cream sauce; it's so spicy and yummy!

I'm basic and get the carnitas tacos mostly but I've just about tried all of them and they are all fantastic!

Honestly one of the best lengua tacos of my life. Their surf and turf burrito is also incredibly flavorful. On all the dishes you can tell they use good ingredients and care about the food.

Delicious!!! I saw this spot on Yelp and decided to go try it out. I got the Carne Asada breakfast burrito and I believe it's by new favorite burrito in town! Guy at the register was super cool and set me up with all the sauces to try. The green jalapeño sauce is too good

The carne asada burrito was delicious.  The beef in it was good and it also had some guacamole.  Was even better with the salsa spices they provide with it.  The grilled mahi mahi taco was alright.  I thought the fish was over done.  But the cole slaw they had with it was a good complementary to the taco in general.

The mahi mahi tacos are amazing and I really want to enjoy my time to enjoy them but the panhandlers and transients take away from that. Customers should be able to shop and enjoy their meals in peace without having to be accosted or afraid because of transients who loiter and have no business being in the plaza. Businesses need to be proactive and the property management security needs to escort panhandlers, transients and trespassers off the premises.
