Local fresh-Mex chain serves Baja-style food, with vegetarian and low-carb options. – The Scene
White-tiled tables and green plastic chairs fill the covered indoor-outdoor dining room. Half-walls allow in the breeze on sunny days, and plasticine curtains can be drawn to shut out rain. Worker bees and families flock here during the midday lunch rush and for inexpensive dinners. Counter service adds to the relaxed environment.
Priding themselves on the motto "we don't serve fast food, we serve fresh food as fast as we can," this quality taco stand is known for ample portions, freshly made tortillas, and burritos packed so full of prime ingredients there is usually no room for rice-and-bean fillers. The grilled carnitas quesadilla is stuffed with flavorful pork, Jack and cheddar cheese. Tender shrimp, guacamole and cheese fill the San Felipe burrito--topping any burrito with rich red mojado sauce turns it into an oversized enchilada. Meatless nature's grill dishes, like the crispy-shelled tostada, brim with a mix of zucchini, eggplant, mushrooms, peppers and onions.
Good chain restuarant – Out of the chain restaurants out there, this is probably one of the best. Initial impression is that this place reminds me of Baja Fresh (in terms of decor). The food is freshly prepared (tortillas are prepared fresh daily). I've had the tacos and burritos both in chicken and were quite tasty. The salsas were also very good. Menu is somewhat limited. I would rate this place in the 8s as opposed to the 9s (currently rated).
Great Food & Healthy – My nutritionist recommended this restaurant for their healthy menu offerings, and I love it. The "Nature's Grilled Vegetables" with chicken and sliced avocado is my mainstay, and the cooks now call it the "Dave Allen Special" (after my nutritionist, not me). I occasionally even have some chips now that I've found they use zero transfat oil. The only con is that most of the parking is in back, but I can usually find street parking in front on Ventura Blvd.
Best Tortillas – They make the corn and flour tortillas fresh right in front of you! This is the best Mexican food and the friendliest service I've found anywhere.
