They're okay. Seems like their prices increase every time I visit though. Most burritos are 11.99 before tax. Bean and cheese is 8.99. They're not good enough to justify those prices.

Great food! Everyone in my party thoroughly enjoyed their food. A definite spot to hit if you want great food without spending a ton of money.

Unfortunately, I must report that the California burrito did not have french fries but diced potato instead. We also picked up a bean and cheese burrito. Both were so small, maybe half the thickness of a typical San Diego burrito. The taste was fine but in a city where burrito and taco shops are plentiful, we likely won’t be back.

⚠️ Simply dislike their food. Gave them another chance and it’s simply awful and small servings. They have a tip line for to-go orders. Sketchy vibes.
