With umpteen locations throughout Mexico and Latin America, this franchise excursion into SA is a bright, loud, and lively fill-up station. To be honest, the food is window dressing (and sobriety-encouraging); it’s “Baja-inspired” bar food—serviceably edible and filling—and everything on the menu is just $3. Everything. Including good-quality tequila shots and quite tasty margaritas and mojitos. Order this to go: The exception to the mundane tacos and tostadas is the addictive potato wedges, lightly coated with a bit of paprika for color, perfectly fried. And, as with any fried food, these wedges are best eaten hot, so maybe go ahead and consume them on the patio (socially distanced) or in your car on the way home. Oh, and the cinnamon-sugar-coated churros too, just a bit doughy inside all that sweet crunch. Pro tip: There’s no phone number listed, nor an online system, so takeout is procured from the walk-up tables outside. Needless to say, those boozy shots are potent and the price tempting, so have your designated driver in mind.
