Has Changed A Lot – This place has changed drastically!! I use to go here back in 1985-1986 and I can remember how excellent the food was. The burritos were gargantuan, and the meal size portions were plenty big too. The prices were affordable for everybody. Nowadays, the burritos are the size of tacos and are overpriced!! Everything is so overpriced and they're so cheap when it comes to portions!!Uugghh!! I sincerely hope they close down someday!! The best tasting burritos along with large size is CHIPOTLE!! HA, TAKE THAT EL TAURINO!!! YOU ARE NO GOOD!!
Best EVER – I have been coming to thos place ever since i can remember and ever since then i can also remember those LONG LINES. but they ask yourselves why is ther ea line, BECAUSE THE FOOD IS GRUB! the casada torta is the best. its open super late and hits the spot. give it a try you won't be let down.
Awesome Food! – When I'm craving carne asada burritos or tacos, this is where I go. It's a no frills restaurant. You wait in line, place your order, get a ticket, walk over to a station and wait till your number is called. Be forewarned, the red sauce is extremely HOT, so you may want to order the green sauce. i have never tried it, but people rave about the dish, "Las Castillas". From what ive seen, it comes with a big slab of meat, onions and tortillas. By the way, if you speak spanish, it is a definate plus. They give you extra condiments if you need it without charging additional for it. If you dont speak spanish, expect to get charged extra for things like extra hot sauce.
GOOD FOOD! – Picture mini tacos with some good, finger licking meat, cilantro and onions and some of the best green sauce. DELICIOUS!!!! It'll make you want more and more!
Great burritos! – I love the con pura carne asada burrito (all meat burrito. The red salsa has a kick to it so a warning to those that cannot take spicy food! The tacos are great too. Only downside is the staff can be pretty stingy with the hot sauce!
THE BEST TACOS! – Absoutely the *BEST* tacos in LA. At $1 each, you can't get a better deal!!! Because it's open late night, it's a terrific place to go eat/hang out after a night of partying.
Feeling Hot, Hot, Hot! – You have to get the Carnes Asada Burritos with lost of hot sauce. But have a nice cup of water next to you, because their sauce is pretty spicy. This is a great place to go eat after a night of drinking and partying!
