Hands down the best place in LA to get Carne Asada fries (~$7.50). If you don't know what carne asada fries are, then you've been missing out. It's a pile of fresh fries covered in tender carne asada, pico de gallo, guacamole, sour cream, and mexican cheese.
This place is open 24 hours every day, so definitely a great late night stop when you're craving good mexican.
The thing that really makes this place stand out is their tortillas. The flour tortillas are large, have the right amount of chewiness / bounce that it doesn't get soggy or break up or become flakey.
Every single one of the burritos is good, especially their carnitas burrito (~$4.50). Also their carne asada quesadillas are humongous but a bit pricey at ~$6.50.
Everything else is spot on, from their breakfast burritos to the traditional drinks like Horchata, Tamarindo, and the sort (but they're not handmade).
There's no indoor seating, but they have an outdoor patio and 2 drive-thrus.

The food here is amazing! Best fish burrito ever! I could go on and on about the food but the best part about this place is when you order through the drive thru. After your done telling them your order all they give you is a quick distorted ""tankyou"". Thats it! No confirming your order, no total, just ""tankyou"".
