This is my favorite restaurant. I usually go during the lunch hour and the service is great and friendly. The food arrives fresh and super fast. The place is great. I have only been for dinner on two occasions, and the service wasn't as excellent, but the place was also pretty packed! I usually order the vegetarian tostada which comes with rice, beans, cheese, lettuce, sour cream, guacamole and a large tomato slice. It is awesome! I do not like spicy food so I order it without the guacamole (I find it to be too spicy for me) but it is the best tostada in Salinas hands down. My single complaint about the place is that their Arizona drinks are $1.99 and I can walk over to the grocery store and purchase them for .99 as marked on the can. Cheesy, I know, but it bothers me anyway.

Humbly hidden in a strip mall, this is my absolute favorite place to grab anything Al Pastor in Salinas. The marinade used in the pastor is savory, tad sweet, and has a nice kick of spice in it. The pastor is best served in the tacos (order 2-3 for a hearty meal), but horrible in the burrito (it's one of those super-sized American concoctions). If you're looking for something more filling than the tacos, you can always ask for the pastor in the tortas, which are ridiculously large, but more palatable than the burritos.
