A family-owned alternative to Chipotle, this fast Mexican spot offers a wide range of traditional fare such as enchiladas, flautas and sopes at reasonable prices. A full breakfast menu, consisting of omelets, chilaquiles, breakfast sandwiches and burritos, is served Monday through Friday to accommodate on-the-go commuters. Wash it all down with horchata or fruit-flavored Jarrito soda. Mexican Coca-Cola, which is made with cane sugar instead of corn syrup, is also available. What really makes this place stand out from other big-menu Mexican restaurants is the absence of gringo options like french fries and pizza puffs. The space is also squeaky-clean, accented with bright colors and urban-inspired prints on the walls.
