The burritos are massive, the soups robust, and the huevos rancheros delicious; we also love the sopes and the fresh chips. It’s a real find near Lake and Colorado, with friendly people, low prices, a couple of sidewalk tables, and a dining room that’s more attractive than your typical Mexican order-at-the-counter joint.
