“The richest Mexican food in town” is the slogan at this storefront café, so dieters beware. 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.

12 N. Mentor Ave., Pasadena, 626.229.0706. Mexican. B, L & D daily. No booze. MC, V. $
