  • Phillip Smith September 23, 2017 | Great service, fun atmosphere, the fried plantains were perfectly prepared. Authentico!
  • Patrick Kelly July 7, 2017 | Everything is made fresh in house and tastes great. They have the best chips and salsa in the TCs. I hear it gets pretty crazy late.
  • Tiffany Parker, February 21, 2017 | Best burrito is Minneapolis, MN hands down. Can't go wrong with anything here in my honest opinion. If I had to chose for you I would do either a Crane Sada or Breakfast burrito with horizon. Expect a line just about anytime but especially at 1 AM.
  • Eduardo Morales, May 10, 2017 | I was here for the 5 de mayo celebration. Good food and music. Had fun with my family.
