“Best breakfast burritos anywhere.UPDATE: still the best. The new facility is really nice. They're always busy, which is great. If you're crunched for time order online ahead of time (you can do it the night before for pick up as early as 07:30).Parking: Can be difficult to find parking if the place is busy. You can park on the street, but there are restrictions to parking in the surrounding neighborhood.“

It will be hard to go back to American Mexican after eating here. Try the flan but forget everything you know about flan, this is 100x better.“

“It's good, but it costs more than it did when it was El Señor Sol, and we liked it better then. They seem to be finding their stride and improving though. Our party all enjoyed our meal. They brought out free friend ice cream for my birthday, which was some of the best I've had in recent memory (and yes, I'd say my family eats its share of fried ice cream. It's just our opinion, but it's an educated one).“

“Great authentic Mexican, similar to Tijuana Flats in Tampa. Great flavors and a good experience. The chicken enchiladas were well seasoned, and the tamales were not dry and quite tasty. The sauces and chip dip have the right amount of heat, like a mid summer medium to mild Jalapeno... Also feels like there's some hatch and poblanos sneaking in there for some really great flavors. The dessert churros also have a tasty, crispy light finish filled with some caramel sauces, strawberry sauce and whipped cream, also very tasty. We'll be going back often!“

That's saying ALLOT. family got a mix review on their taco dinners (fish, chicken, & steak, 3 each). Over cooked chicken and fish, grisly steak bites). Like I said, interestingly the burger was off the chain... Maybe I got lucky but you bet your butt I'm getting again next time we're here! Atmosphere is so chill...
