- "Love Alejandros. They are super friendly and have good food. So I actually ate inside, I've tried their carne asada burrito as well as the red chili. Both super good. Oh, if you are going to eat there, you pay at the cashier at the front of the restaurant then give a payment slip to the people out by the restaurant. I was there Sunday afternoon and several people came in for menudo to go, one left with a huge family size container, I figure it must be pretty good if all those people were eating it.
It's worth the drive to check it out, I came from across town just for a burrito and some tortillas."
- "When we first arrived, I peeked in at the factory and witnessed the fresh chips coming off the assembly line while enjoying the magnificent aromas coming off the outside grill in front of the store.
Once inside I headed straight to the bakery area and found just about every kind of colorful bakery delight imaginable.
Fresh spices and a meat market make it impossible to leave without buying something good to take home.
I came away with some churros, fresh buns (sweet and soft bread!), fresh tortillas, torilla chips, chipotle sauce, and hot salsa....enough for my partner to make up some burritos and have friends over to share.
It doesn't get much better than this."
- "What a secret treasure trove. Made a quick stop for some buns and tortillas. Didn't realize that they run an entire market with other local items.
Store was filled with the fresh bakery smells as they were reloading the racks with buns and empanadas Awesome.
Good selection of Mexican cheeses and the meat counter had fresh made carne seca. Can't wait to try that. Staff was extremely helpful.
If you want to prepare any Mexican specialties this is the place to go for authentic ingredients."
