Typical pseudo-mission style on the outside meets roomy loft on the inside, taking you by surprise, but in a good way. The way that makes you glad you decided to give it a shot instead of going to In 'n Out....again.
The decor is downright fun, with collections of all manner of spanishy-inspired and not-really-spanishy-at-all items hanging on and from every surface in the place. From plates to vases to wooden parratos, your kids will get a kick out of this place even before they start eating.
Ah, but then the food will arrive (approximately 18 seconds after you order it), and I'm sure every member of the family will be pleased. From freshly made tortillas, to healthy portions of both rice and beans, even the pickiest family members will have something to cheer about.
We orderd the chicken fajita platter that, apparently, is supposed to feed 2-3 people. If you can only feed two people with this combo, then those people had better have just run a marathon. We had no trouble filling our whole family to the gills with this plate, which included the rice and beans, sour cream, shredded cheese, guacamole, as much salsa/limes/cilantro/onions as our little hearts desired from the salsa bar, and an enormous stack of those freshly made tortillas. Oh, and of course, the actual chicken. We loved it, all three of the kids loved it, and our budget was a fan, too. Feeding five people for $23 and not needing to drink water in order to do it? Now that's my kind of lunch.
