First of all the sheer fact that they are opened until 1 AM - just wOw! Hit a late showing of a movie and then headed here. Talk about authentic!!

And the gentleman was gracious and pleasant. More people should discover this lil hideaway on 55th & Douglas for either late night munchies or just a...read full review

The food there is normally pretty good. I stopped by with my son to get an order to go. He ordered the two taco meal and I asked if we could get them at soft shells, they said that's fine. I ordered the chimichanga and asked for it as Carnitas, the guy seemed like he didn't understand so I said chicken is fine. Got the food home and the tacos were hard shell and my chimichanga was beef.

I live thier chorizo breakfast burritos and they are huge! I will get one for breakfast and not be hungry until dinner time. I know that have other items on thier menu but this is the only one I've tried because I enjoy it so much.Only negative I have to say is that if you show up at 8:00 AM when they say they open, you will be disappointed. They are usually open by 8:30 but some days it's closer to 9:00.
