This simple spot has always been a top favorite with my children.  To order, get in line, choose from the limited menu, then try to find a seat in the small interior.  Most people seem to order to go, so there is often seating when it looks to be impossible.  Our favorite item is the super burrito, which is stuffed with all the good stuff, including sour cream and avocado, and is big enough that my husband and I almost always share just one.  However, we are also fond of the huge quesadilla made with a flour tortilla and again stuffed with almost everything.  This one I could manage to eat all by myself.  The crispy taco also has many fans.  Most dishes are available vegetarian.
