Best things that looked like burritos that I ever ate. Went back with one of my people that spoke spanish and got the same again. I forget the name for them but they were great!!! my troop wanted to know haw the heck I stumbled on that place. for about 8 months they were my Thursday eating place. (single military learn how to reconoiter and find the necessities of life, booze, wild women, good food)
